  1. Journey through SPACE and TIME

  2. Who Am I?

  3. What do I do?

  4. Journey through space Journey through time

  5. Destination 1 Nearest neighbour: the Moon

  6. Space travel: speed? Cruising speed ~ 500Mph Cruising speed ~ 17000Mph Bristol to florida in 12 mins!

  7. 250000 miles 15 hours in our shuttle How long do you think it takes to get from Earth to the Moon?

  8. Destination 2 Nearest star...

  9. Sol? Betelgeuse? Alpha Centauri? Proxima Centauri?

  10. Why does the Sun shine?

  11. Nuclear FUSION Releases more energy Harder to control! CONNECTION??? Nuclear FISSION: Splitting the atom

  12. Destination 3 Nearest planet?

  13. ? ? ? ? ? ?

  14. Mercury The Sun Mars Earth Venus

  15. Mars-Earth closest approach 27 August 2003 35 million miles! In our space shuttle... 86 days! In reality... MRO took 7 months...

  16. Fly over the Martian surface

  17. We need to put our foot down!

  18. Solar System Fly-by

  19. Jupiter: largest planet 63+ moons! Picture: Voyager 1979

  20. Saturn Everyone’s favorite! Picture: Cassini 2004

  21. Uranus: Also a gas giant Spins on its side! Picture: Voyager 2 1979

  22. Neptune: Also a gas giant Uranus’ twin! Picture: Voyager 2 1979

  23. Pluto???

  24. Relative sizes

  25. Escaping the Solar System... Pluto is 3660 million miles away... It will take us 25 years! Upgrade... Light speed: 670 million MPH 5 hours to get to pluto!

  26. Destination4 Nearest star: Proxima Centauri

  27. ? Proxima Centauri Travel Time: 4 Years, at light speed! Nearest star with planets: Epsilon Eridani 10 Years, at light speed! (400,000 yrs in a shuttle...)

  28. Ever seen this?

  29. 100 billion stars You are here!

  30. Destination 5 Centre of the Galaxy

  31. 26,000 years... What will we find?

  32. BLACK HOLE!!! Death of star: supernova

  33. How do we know ??

  34. impressive Black Holes

  35. Stars AGN CMB Stars Planets Planets DISTANCE FROM US REDSHIFT Galaxies Galaxies Galaxies Galaxies AGN Clusters Clusters Clusters Clusters Clusters Clusters CMB

  36. Destination 6 Andromeda Galaxy

  37. Closest similar galaxy Largest in local group 2.5 million light years away

  38. Zoom out: Hubble Deep field A 2 millionth of the sky!!!

  39. Galaxy cluster OPTICAL light

  40. Stars AGN CMB Stars Planets Planets DISTANCE FROM US REDSHIFT Galaxies Galaxies Galaxies Galaxies AGN Clusters Clusters Clusters Clusters Clusters Clusters CMB

  41. Galaxy cluster X-rays

  42. Galaxy cluster Radio waves

  43. Zoom out again - galaxies form filaments and voids The whole Universe is made up this way Time for us to go home... Fly through the cosmic web

  44. zoom back to Earth...

  45. Journey through space Journey through time

  46. IN THE BEGINNING...

  47. EVERYTHING!
