Experience the Universe in one morning with the program, From Earth to the Universe, created by the European Organization for Astronomical Research in the Southern Hemisphere. This program will be followed by a live presentation of the night sky, a virtual trip to the edge of the Universe, and conclude with a question and answer session with two of our knowledgeable specialists.
This stunning voyage through space and time conveys, through sparkling sights and sounds, the Universe as revealed to us by science. Viewers can revel in the splendor of the various planets in the Solar System and the ferocity of the scorching Sun. From Earth to the Universe then leaves our home to take the audience out to the colorful birthplaces and burial grounds of stars, and still further out, beyond the Milky Way, to the unimaginable immensity of myriads of galaxies. Along the way, the audience will learn about the history of astronomy, the invention of the telescope, and today’s giant telescopes that allow us to probe ever deeper into the Universe.
