The night sky is both beautiful and full of mystery. Join us on a journey of discovery in time and space, in which astronomers look at the stars and try to understand what they see.

Today, there are both terrestrial and space-based telescopes that collect the light of the universe, not only visible light but also infrared, radio and X-ray waves. Using these, we look at the solar system's planets, supernovae and black holes, star clusters, nebulae and galaxies.

We live in a fantastic universe that constantly surprises us with new riddles and more complexity.
