Last Chance to See From Earth to the Universe The Ultimate Photographic Trip at the Powerhouse Museum
Through photos and objects the exhibition showcases the beauty and mysteries of the universe.
SYDNEY.- It is fast becoming your last chance to see images that are literally out of this world.

The exhibition From Earth to the Universe at the Powerhouse Museum – where visitors can take a breathtaking journey through our galaxy and beyond – will close on May 30.

Through photos and objects the exhibition showcases the beauty and mysteries of the universe. It reveals how the telescope has expanded our knowledge and vision since Italian scientist Galileo Galilei first looked through one 400 years ago.

The spectacular recent images of the sky have been collected by astronomers at the Harvard-Smithsonian Centre for Astrophysics, complemented by a range of Australian images emphasising our Southern Hemisphere location sourced by renowned astrophotographer Dr David Malin.

Modern observations have led to exciting new concepts such as black holes, dark matter and mysterious dark energy. The eye-catching images displayed in the exhibition allow us to appreciate both the beauty and the fascination of what astronomers are revealing about the universe.

The stunning images are accompanied by astronomy-related objects from the Powerhouse Museum’s collection including an 19th century Orrery (model of the solar system), a Grubb telescope ordered by Sydney Observatory for the 1882 Transit of Venus, a model of NASA’s Hubble Space Telescope and an exact replica of one of only two existing telescopes attributed
to Galileo.

From Earth to the Universe will leave visitors contemplating the beauty and wonder of the universe long after they have left the exhibition.
