More » On October 22, 1797, Andre-Jacques Garnerin made his first successful parachute jump above Paris. His work was translated into Latin hundreds of years later, and served as the European introduction to the Indian number system, complete with its concept of zero. Now, our initial spectroscopic images represent a new phase in the evolution of our ability demonstrating the potential of Northern Skies Observatory for involving students in authentic scientific research.

In addition, retroreflectors left on the Moon’s surface by Apollo astronauts have allowed high-power laser beams to be sent from Earth to the Moon and back, permitting scientists to monitor the Earth-Moon distance to an accuracy of a few centimetres. The very earliest stages of the big bang are less well understood. Travel across the universe (or is it universes?) to see stunning images of Saturn's rings, hear haunting sounds from distant black holes and catch an infectious sense of wonder about galaxies far, far away.
