Show - Two Small Pieces of Glass

Two Small Pieces of Glass

Two Small Pieces of Glass traces the history of the telescope from Galileo's modifications to a child's spyglass -- using two small pieces of glass -- to the launch of NASA's Hubble Space Telescope and the future of astronomy. Explore the wonder and discovery made by astronomers throughout the last 400 years. While looking through the astronomer's telescope, explore the Galilean Moons, Saturn's rings, and spiral structure of galaxies, and learn about the discoveries of Galileo, Huygens, Newton, Hubble, and many others.

 

This show may be scheduled to view in a private group showing.
