New views of the skies

Four centuries ago, in 1609, a man walked out into the fields near his

home. He pointed his homemade telescope at the Moon, the planets and the stars.

His name was Galileo Galilei. Astronomy would never be the same again.


Today, 400 years after Galileo first pointed a telescope to the skies, astronomers use giant mirrors on remote mountaintops to survey the heavens.

Radio telescopes collect faint chirps and whispers from outer space.

Scientists have even launched telescopes into space, high above the disturbing effects of our atmosphere.


And the view has been breathtaking!


The Eyes on the Skies is a movie produced as standard DVD and Blu-ray format, freely available for TV broadcasters and for public events carried out by educators, science centres, planetariums, amateur astronomers etc. (send your email, postal address plus a justification to us ). It explores the many facets of the telescope — the historical development, the scientific importance, the technological breakthroughs, and also the people behind this ground-breaking invention, their triumphs and failures. It is presented by Dr. J, aka Dr. Joe Liske, a professional astronomer from the European Southern Observatory and host of the Hubblecast video podcast.
