Two Small Pieces of Glass


Two Small Pieces of Glass

While attending a local star party, two teenagers learn how the telescope has helped us understand our place in space and how telescopes continue to expand our understanding of the Universe.

Their conversation with a local female astronomer enlightens them on the history of the telescope and the discoveries these wonderful tools have made.

The students see how telescopes work and how the largest observatories in the world use these instruments to explore the mysteries of the Universe.

Music by the London Symphony Orchestra.
