A captivating exhibition of celestial bodies, from 19th-century drawings to the latest pictures from the Hubble telescope.

Telling the story of our universe from the big bang to the present day, this exhibition reveals the wonders of deep space. Starting with Galileo, the first person to look at the stars through a telescope, Visions of the Universe charts the development of astronomical imaging, revealing the role that astronomers played in pushing forward the technology of cameras and telescopes, so that in 2013 we can see the weather on distant planets and look beyond the Milky Way into galaxies beyond.
