Imaging the Universe

A look at how telescopes give us a clearer and brighter view of the Universe.

2009 marks the 400th anniversary of Galileo's first use of the telescope. In this talk, Robert Massey will outline how telescopes give us a brighter and clearer view of the cosmos and how they progressed from being unwieldy primitive tubes to state-of-the-art space observatories. The talk concludes with a look at the monster telescopes being planned that just might let us find the first hints of life elsewhere in the Universe.
