Who we are and what we do

The history of the Universe in the blink of an eye

The history of our Universe is written in the skies. Radio astronomers can detect ancient signals from the dawn of time as well as light from our nearest neighbours. Separating out these layers of time and space allows them to reconstruct the evolution of the Universe. This film reveals how thirteen billion years of history can be captured in a single moment.
