Castles to the Sky


A visit to astronomical observatories from 3000 BC to the future and what they teach us each step of the way, Castles to the Sky shows the cultures and individuals who looked into the heavens to unravel its mysteries, and the relationship of the universe to life on earth. Castles is an immersive visual experience seen through the eyes and minds of astronomers, exploring out to the most distant edges of the universe and back to the beginning of time.
