This exhibition presents and explains the extraordinary variety of important historic, modern, and contemporary space photographs that have been made since the development of the photography in the first half of the19th century. Images of deep space from great observatories around the world are included. In addition, many photographs from the Jet Propulsion Laboratory and other institutions’ exploration of the solar system are represented, as well as a history of satellite photographs of our planet and the revolutionary discoveries these represent. There also are three Power Point presentations (suitable for flat-screen televisions) with more images and videos to supplement the framed photographs of the Earth; the solar system; and the universe beyond.

The Foosaner Art Musuem is open Wednesday - Saturday.
