“Somewhere, something incredible is waiting to be known” (Carl Sagan)


How has the relationship between the earth and the celestial bodies influenced and shaped our world since the beginning of time, both physically and culturally?

One of the oldest natural sciences, astronomy and our relationship with the extra-terrestrial goes to the heart of the ancient civilisations. From a time when the celestial objects were seen to be part of the world of the gods to the first calendars, navigational instruments and Galileo and the invention of the telescope. Like it or not, we are inexorably drawn to explore and discover forces, phenomena and worlds beyond our scientific understanding. No wonder that the ancient philosophers were also astronomers, seeking to discover our place in the universe and time.
