400 Years of the Telescope airs on PBS this month.
In 400 Years of the Telescope, Neil deGrasse Tyson takes viewers on a visually stunning journey from Galileo¹s first look at the cosmos in 1609, to today¹s thrilling quests to discover new worlds and glimpse the formation of the
first stars after the Big Bang. With warmth and humor, the planet¹s top astrophysicists discuss momentous discoveries and how telescopes have changed our understanding of the universe. Looking into the future, viewers
will learn of emergent telescopes that may detect life outside our solar system and allow humans to view the initial moments of the Big Bang.
