  • Studies of the heavens have posed many of the most alluring and challenging questions asked since humankind first began to look upwards. Our dependence upon celestial phenomena to regulate the calendar and agriculture led to the earliest inquiries concerning the sky above us. Attempts to understand and explain the nature of astronomical events have brought us to fundamentally new concepts about the universe and our place within it. The history of astronomy is a record of these activities, which stretches from the pre-literate cultures who constructed Stonehenge to the wonders of contemporary astronomy –– a Big-Bang origin of the universe, black holes, and the possibility of extraterrestrial life.
