The Evolving Universe allows visitors to take a journey from our Earth to the far reaches of space. Explore how stars and galaxies – and even the universe itself – change from birth to maturity to death. Full color, high-resolution photographs, interpretive explanation from illustrated text panels, and unique video captures the awe-inspiring beauty of the cosmos as seen through high-powered terrestrial and orbiting telescopes. The exhibition is an exciting introduction to all we know today about cosmology – and the amazing technologies we use to attain that knowledge.
