|"We invite you to come
along on a series of voyages to explore the universe as
astronomers understand it today. Beyond Earth are vast and
magnificent realms full of objects that have no counterpart on
our home planet. Nevertheless, we hope to show you that the
evolution of the universe has been directly responsible for your
presence on Earth today"
