Two Small Pieces of Glass

Two Small Pieces of Glass traces the history of the telescope from Galileo’s modifications to a child’s spyglass – using two small pieces of glass – to the launch of NASA’s Hubble Space Telescope and the future of astronomy.

This 360-degree immersive show explains how telescopes are used today by the largest observatories in the world to unlock the mysteries of the Universe.

Complemented with spectacular imagery of Saturn’s rings, beautiful stellar nurseries and the spiral structure of galaxies, Two Small Pieces of Glass shares the way telescope development has helped us understand our place in space
