Join us for a journey of celestial discovery, from the theories of the ancient Greek astronomers to today’s grandest telescopes.
Directed by the young Greek filmmaker, Theofanis N. Matsopoulos, and featuring a sweeping soundtrack from Norwegian composer, Johan B. Monell, viewers can revel in the splendor of the various worlds in the Solar System and the ferocity of the scorching Sun.
“From Earth to the Universe” then leaves our home to take the audience out to the colorful birthplaces and burial grounds of stars, and still further out, beyond the Milky Way, to the unimaginable immensity of a myriad galaxies.
Along the way, the audience will learn about the history of astronomy, the invention of the telescope, and today’s giant telescopes that allow us continue to probe ever deeper into the Universe.
