Summary
The history of the telescope from the days of Copernicus to recent findings from the Hubble Telescope; opening in 17th century Florence, Italy, with Galileo training his spyglass on the heavens and discovering that Jupiter has four moons, Venus has phases like the Moon, and most shocking of all: the Earth is not the center of the universe
