The contemplation of the night sky, with the naked eye or using a telescope, is one of the most intense and rewarding experiences there is. The beauty of the stars fascinates everyone and is a never-ending source of inspiration. Under the title of ‘The beauty of the universe’, CosmoCaixa presents two singular visions of the cosmos: ‘Light years’ and ‘Other worlds’.
‘Light years’ (Anys llum) is the work of the renowned Catalan artist Eugènia Balcells and invites visitors to explore space, time and intimate details on the subject using light, our main source of information.
In ‘Other worlds’ (Altres mons), the North American photographer and filmmaker Michael Benson shows the incredible diversity of the worlds making up our solar system, thanks to a spectacular collection of photos from NASA and worked on by the author.
