Experience an interactive view of the 3D Universe, and see how galaxies form and evolve through cosmic time as you go on the longest journey of your life! From the viewpoint of the solar neighbourhood, you’ll see how matter is structured around Earth from galaxies, groups, clusters, to the largest scales of the observable Universe. You’ll learn how astronomers catalogue galaxies, and how cosmologists are trying to pin down the nature of dark matter and the fate of the Universe.
