Explore our place within the universe

Most people have looked up into a clear night sky and wondered how we on our single, tiny planet, fit into it all.

Drop into Tate Exchange and find out how astronomers are trying to answer that question. You might explore the sky: not just at night, but using computer simulations to see what would be overhead during the day, if we could only see it. Or you may get immersed inside one of the most sophisticated models of the Universe ever made, and watch it evolve and change around you. Or you might see what the world’s largest robotic telescope was doing last night. The universe is a place of mystery and wonder, but by chipping away at the mystery, the wonder increases and the whole cosmos is laid out before us.

The Astrophysics Exchange is created by the Astrophysics Research Institute of Liverpool John Moores University, and at some scheduled times astronomers from the Institute will be in Tate Exchange to answer any questions you have about the Universe.

Programmed in association with Liverpool John Moores University, a Tate Exchange Liverpool Associate.
