Unveiling the Invisible Universe

March 25 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every week that begins at 7:00 pm on Friday, repeating until March 25, 2022

Fridays – March 4, 11, 18 & 25 at 7:00pm

For tens of thousands of years humans have used their eyes to see light coming from the night sky. Today we use scientific instruments to observe the invisible Universe all around us. The invention of the telescope by Galileo revolutionized our knowledge of the Universe. In the 20th century, with the arrival of rockets and new instruments, it became possible to travel above the Earth’s atmosphere and observe X-ray and gamma ray radiation, evidence of a hot and violent Universe. Enjoy spellbinding images of the Cosmos as revealed by all these unique messengers.
