Astronomy Live: Grand Tour of the Universe with Brian Abbott

November 25, 2014

AL 13 July Grand Tour

Nearly all of us know we're the third planet from the Sun, but where are we among the stars in the Milky Way? Do we hold a special place among the planets, stars, and galaxies in the universe? Your guide, Brian Abbott, joined by Ashley Pagnotta and Jana Grcevich, will answer these questions while you travel from Earth to the most distant objects in the universe. Explore planets, extrasolar planets, nearby stars, and the myriad galaxies that populate the universe while we fly through the 3D Digital Universe Atlas. In one evening, you will experience the entire observable universe and come to a cosmic understanding of where we are and how we came to be.
