Through full-color images from high-powered terrestrial and orbiting telescopes, take a mind-bending journey from present-day Earth to the far reaches of space and the distant past — back to the beginning of the universe. Explore how stars and galaxies — even the universe itself — change from birth to maturity to death, much like living things on Earth. Presented in collaboration with the Smithsonian Astrophysical Observatory.
