In this new exhibit, drift deep into space and experience the majesty and wonder of our universe purely through images. A contemplative, aesthetic and introspective experience, All the Cosmos a Canvas highlights the natural beauty in our universe that's often overlooked.


From the dawn of time to a mere 400 years ago, all that we've known about our universe came through observations with the naked eye. Then Galileo turned his telescope toward the heavens in 1610, forever changing our perception of the natural world. In the centuries that followed, telescopes grew in size and power.


Edwin Hubble, who the Hubble Telescope is named after, used the largest telescope of his day in the 1920s at the Mt. Wilson Observatory near Pasadena, Calif., to discover galaxies beyond our own. Hubble's launch in April 1990 marked the most significant advance in astronomy since Galileo's telescope. Thanks to five servicing missions and more than 30 years of operation, our view of the universe and our place within it has never been the same.
