About this show

From subatomic particles to the largest galaxies, cosmic collisions are a universal phenomenon of nature. Creative and also destructive, dynamic and dazzling, collisions have resulted in many things we take for granted – the luminescent Moon, the Sun’s warmth and light, our changing seasons, waves washing up a sandy shore. They’ve ended the Age of Dinosaurs and changed the very map of cosmos, reforming galaxies and giving birth to new stars and new worlds.
»Cosmic Collisions« provides an unprecedented and extraordinary view of these events – both catastrophic and constructive – that have shaped our world and our universe.
