The Greatest Hits of the Greatest Telescopes
The first telescopes were developed in the Netherlands in 1608 by three spectacle makers in Middelburg. The following year Galileo greatly improved the refracting telescope's design.
Since then telescopes have evolved from lenses and mirrors to to sophisticated high-tech instruments capable of sensing ultraviolet, x-ray, infrared and submillimetre wavelength light to produce images with incredible detail.
Join us as we view spectacular images from some of the worlds greatest telescopes including land-based telescopes and space-based observatories like Hubble, Chandra, Spitzer, Kepler and more.
All shows are presented under a realistic representation of the night sky, featuring the latest galactic, stellar and planetary images.
Visitors are encouraged to ask questions during each 45-minute program. Children are welcome to attend.
