system, which is part of a galaxy, which is one of many in the universe and explore the immense
scales associated with space.

construct a picture of things out there that is
extraordinarily cogent and complete. Our
knowledge now encompasses the entire spread of
space and time, from the Earth itself to the horizon
of the Universe, and from the Big Bang to the

and all it contains, then it truly is the science of
