Free all the time: 40 years of space photography

Posted by Carren Jao Pineda |

Until now, I still can't forget the lines from Walt Whitman's "When I Heard the Learn'd Astronomers" Every time I look up at the skies, I'm always enveloped by a sense of wonder at its beauty and humbled by its great mystery.

If you feel the same, then the California Science Center has an exhibit for you: Forty Years of Space Photography. Because the exhibition is in the center's permanent gallery, admission is free.

The site says:

From the earliest photographs of our closest celestial neighbor, the moon, to the farthest reaches of our known Universe, these photographs reveal our progress and help us understand our place in the cosmos. Forty Years of Space Photography provides a window on our Universe and the technology we use to view it.
