Astronomy: The Meaning in the Stars


NARRATOR: The Earth is our home. For millennia, humans have roamed the land,
exploring every inch of what our planet has to offer. Beyond, however, the heavens stretch as an
unexplored frontier. Since humans first looked at the night sky,
people have wondered what lies beyond the realm of our planet. What kinds of worlds await us out there, in
the infinitude of space? Where did the universe- its nebulae, stars,
planets, and more- come from? And what does the future of the universe hold
for all of us? Today, we explore. NARRATOR: For centuries, astronomers have
used various instruments to explore heavens. One such instrument is the telescope. Oh look! Here is an astronomer using a telescope now! He must be observing Mars in retrograde! What a fine day it is to use a telescope! How are you, fine sir? ASTRONOMER: Well, actually I lost my license ’bout
