Astronomy and Space Exploration

Astronomy

3000 Years of Stargazing

The sky, and everything that happens in it, has always piqued our curiosity. Eclipses, the regular cycle of the seasons, and the motion of the stars have fascinated us since our earliest ancestors looked up to the sky.
In the learned company of a cartoon Einstein, this show takes audiences on a tour of the major astronomical milestones of the last 3,000 years – from the cosmological models of antiquity, through the Ptolemaic system of epicycles, to the contributions of Copernicus, Newton, Hubble and many others. We explore the discoveries made possible by the use of technology – from the first telescope used by Galileo – to modern ones in use on Earth and in space. All have revealed the beauty of the cosmos.
Come along for an exploration of nebulae, pulsars, and black holes and 3,000 years of astronomy exploration!
