Our Amazing Universe: A Journey of discovery
7th January 2021 – 14:30 – 14:45
As we look to the night sky we imagine what lies beyond our protective blanket of the atmosphere. We sometimes glimpse visitors from beyond as shooting stars as they burn up in the atmosphere above. We may witness the night sky light up in a cosmic dance with the beautiful Northern Lights.
There is even the possibility to gaze upon ancient distant travelers as comets as they pass by us on their own journey around our star, The Sun.
Through telescopes we gaze out into the universe and travel through space and time. Our scientific endeavours and exploration of space through robotic spacecraft have uncovered incredible vistas and secrets yet to be explained.
This presentation will take you on a journey through space and time and highlight some of the amazing discoveries we have made about our own Solar System and out into interstellar space and the universe beyond.
