Did you ever
wonder what types of objects make up our vastly large universe? Or how some
things you see in the night sky could be explained? If so, this show is for
you. We will take a look at how astronomers study the heavens, mainly with the
use of different kinds of telescopes. Using these huge light collectors, they
have been able to see heavenly objects that inspire wonder and delight.
Throughout the show, we will take a survey of the known universe. We answer
several important questions such as, “How big is our solar system? How big is
the universe? What are stars like? Where are the other galaxies located?”
Naturally we see things like shooting stars and the northern lights and we also
see our satellites going around. The show concludes with a look at
humankind’s future in space.

launch in 1990, the Hubble Space Telescope has provided incredible images in
unprecedented detail to astronomers, and made an astonishing array of
discoveries – from nearby objects in the solar system to the most distant
galaxies at the limits of the observable universe. In this production, major
themes in current astronomy and cosmology are presented. This show looks at
views of the planets, peeks into stellar nurseries and shows visions of stellar
death in its many forms. Hubble has explored star clusters and galaxies as well
as views of the universe when the earliest galaxies first shone. Join us in
viewing the universe through the unblinking eye of one of the world’s premier
