Discover how mysteries are being unraveled through the most beautiful images ever captured of our universe. From extreme close ups of our nearest cosmic companion the moon, to images of galaxies 15 billion years away Cosmic Vistas will show and explain how scientists are trying to get the big picture of existence.

Episode 1 – Hubble’s Renaissance
Thanks to a dramatic repair mission the Hubble Space Telescope has another chance to capture more stunning pictures like only it can. See how the final tune up came together and what Hubble has learned since.

Episode 2 – Superscopes
Nothing has transformed our understanding of the night sky like the telescope, but even the superstars of 20th century astronomy like the Hubble Space Telescope will be dwarfed in accomplishment by the superscopes of the future. Gigantic telescopes with multiple mirrors working in unison, like the Spitzer Space Telescope, will see further and possibly get our first pictures ever of another planet that can support life as we know it.

Episode 3 – Cosmic Rainbow
Seeing is everything in the world of astronomy, but how do we overcome the limits imposed by our own eyesight? We do it by watching the universe in wavelengths outside the scope of our vision. The cosmos comes alive when viewed from infrared light to gamma radiation.

Episode 4 – Stargazer’s Paradise
The Atacama Desert in Chili provides some of the best views on Earth of the night sky. High in the mountains and far removed from the light pollution of big cities incredibly advanced telescopes gather images that rival, and sometimes surpass the Hubble Space Telescope.

Episode 5 – Night Fire
The Northern Lights are more than just beautiful. They tell us about the make up of our planet, our sun, and may even be a signpost for the possibility of life on other planets.

Episode 6 – Virtual Universe
Our understanding of the cosmos is limited not only but what we can see, but by the amount of time we have to see it. Fortunately computer simulations are helping us see what it’s like to fly over other worlds, how galaxies interact over millions of years, and even how dark matter structures the universe.
