  • Overview
  • 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.  During the program, 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 be taking 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, we also see our satellites going around.  This leads to the show's conclusion, a look at humankind's future in space.
