Stories of Discovery from Asteroids to Aliens.

The BBC presenter of Sky at Night, and Gresham Professor of Astronomy, Chris Lintott, takes us on an astonishing tour of bizarre accidents, big characters, and human error to tell the story of some of the most important astronomical events of the past hundred years – from the first sightings of new galaxies to the possibility of twinkling radio stars. As new telescopes are built on mountaintops and in deserts around the world, aiming to transform our view of the universe once more, Lintott shows us that keeping an open mind will benefit everyone – whatever might still be lurking out there for us to find.
