Inspiring everyone with our wonderful cosmos.
Since the beginning of history, humans have taken an interest in space and the questions of where we came from and how we got here. The study of astronomy helps guide us towards answers to these questions and gives context to our place in the Universe. There are still many unanswered questions about space today. Current research is struggling to understand questions like: ‘how old are we?’, ‘What is the fate of our Universe?’ and possibly most interesting: ‘how unique is our Universe, and could a slightly different Universe have ever supported life?’ Moreover the astonishingly immense size and complexity of space puts our beautiful Earth into perspective and promotes global citizenship and pride of our home planet.
This is the vision behind the educational project, Universe Awareness (www.unawe.org).
