Since the dawn of mankind, humans have looked “up” and wondered. From nonverbal musings to analytical investigations, from the Megalithic Stone Builders to Copernicus and Kepler; this is the foundation of modern astronomy. Then, Galileo first turned a telescope to the sky in 1609 and the “Universe,” as we had come to know it, would never be the same. Take a journey through the astronomical ages, from ancient observatories to NASA’s Great Observatories, the International Year of Astronomy, the Large Hadron Collider, and beyond.
