Starting from the mythological universe of antiquity, the geocentric theory of Ptolemy, the heliocentric theory, the revolution through the invention of the telescope, spectral analysis and the latest technologies in today's astronomical observations are presented. Fantastic images from the world's leading astronomical institutions, including three major observatories in the world - Mauna Kea (Hawaii), La Palma (Canary Islands) and Atacama (Chile) - provide insight into the astronomical research of our days. An exciting journey through the history of the observatories to the modern space telescope.
