Summary
The history of the telescope from the time of Galileo, its profound impact upon the science of astronomy, and how both shape the way we view ourselves in the midst of an infinite universe. Features interviews with leading astrophysicists and cosmologists who explain concepts ranging from Galileo's act of revealing the cosmos with a simple telescope, to the latest discoveries in space, including startling new ideas about life on other planets and dark energy--a mysterious vacuum energy that is accelerating the expansion of the universe
