Hunting the Edge of Space - the Ever Expanding Universe

About the Show

NOVA: In this mini-series, NOVA examines how a simple instrument, the telescope, has fundamentally changed our understanding of our place in the universe. What began as a curiosity - two spectacle lenses held a foot apart - ultimately revolutionised human thought across science, philosophy and religion. The series takes viewers on a global adventure of discovery, dramatising the innovations in technology and the achievements in science that have marked the history of the telescope.
