Combining art, science, photography, and exploration, this exhibition presents 148 images of the Sun, the planets, and their moons taken over the last 50 years by unmanned robotic space probes, which were later digitally enhanced by artist Michael Benson. These images give viewers a look at these distant places in great and colorful detail and provide a photographic introduction to these astonishingly diverse landscapes.
