Welcome to astronomy. During this segment of Earth/Space we'll explore the universe as we know it. We'll go back in time and look at early astronomers and their accomplishments as the first true science started to evolve. Then, we'll move forward to the present and talk about modern man, his accomplishments and finally look to the future and speculate about things to come. During each step we'll take time to stop and investigate topics such as planetary formation, stars, space exploration, and celestial objects.
