Hello Universe

A mesmerising journey through the incredible sights and sounds of space.

We invited you to look up and fuel your curiosity; imagine remote galaxies and wonder who—or what—is out there. Hello Universe took you on a voyage, from the earliest paintings of planets to today’s super-high definition photographs of deepest space.

You could get up close to a meteorite; come face-to-face with a Mars lander; build your own probe, rover or rocket from LEGO; discover what space actually sounds like; and listen to intergalactic messages... or create your own!

Hello Universe told real stories of technology reaching millions of miles beyond our planet, introduced the people who make it happen, and showed how you could be part of the next great space discovery.
