128th Global Star Party - "The Tools of Cosmic Exploration" - Explore Alliance

128th Global Star Party

Video | Schedule | Gear

"Exploration knows no bounds, and space, the final frontier, has always been an unreachable dream until we developed the tools to reach out and touch it."

- Buzz Aldrin

The human journey of exploring the universe is a remarkable saga. It's a story of relentless curiosity, ingenuity, and determination. We've used a vast array of tools to unlock the mysteries of the cosmos, tools that have evolved from simple telescopes to cutting-edge spacecraft and rovers. Common to all of us, telescopes have been our trusty companions in our cosmic odyssey. From Galileo's modest refractor in the 17th century to the powerful space telescopes, they have allowed us to peer deeper into the universe than ever before. Our presenters shared their experiences with their gear, discussed how they work, and explained their significance in making their personal exploration of the universe.
