This bilingual (English and Spanish) exhibition features some 50 large-scale images of a variety of astronomical objects -- from Earth to the farthest corners of the universe -- taken by ground- and space-based telescopes to show how this technology has advanced in the 400 years since Galileo first used a telescope to study the skies.

Presented as part of the International Year of Astronomy 2009.
