Once upon the Big Bang

The Big Bang Theory is one of the leading explanations of how the universe came into existence.

The universe as we know it, started with a singularity, inflating over the next 13.8 billion years to the cosmos that we know today. Current technology is still insufficient to peer back at the time of universe’s birth, hence much of what we understand about the Big Bang Theory came from mathematical theory and models.

“Once upon the Big Bang” explores the fascinating events of the birth of time and space: the beginning of universe from an Infinitesimal point to a tiny Super-hot speck to the enormous Cosmos of our Era. Enjoy the 3D graphics that will take you on an immersive journey to the instance of the Big Bang.

Bizarre Moons

Our Moon is the most prominent & special companion in Earth’s night sky. It was year 1610, when Simon Marius & Galileo Galilei discovered Jupiter’s four large satellites, bringing the number of known moons in the Solar System to five. Our Solar System now embodies more than 170 named moons around its planets. Despite being few in number, the Planets have often overshadowed the moons in terms of size, and as our technology advances these minor members of solar system display amazing aspects & facets beyond our wildest imagination. The Moons now outshine their stolid parents in character. Join us for a tour of some of the most frigid, violent & absolutely strange worlds in ‘Bizarre Moons’.

Unveiling the Invisible Universe

Unveiling the Invisible Universe

For thousands of years the humans observed the light coming from the night sky with their eyes. In the beginning of the 17th century, the invention of the telescope by Galileo revolutionized our knowledge of the Universe. Finally, in the 20th century with the advent of rockets, it became possible to go above the earth’s atmosphere and observe X-ray and gamma ray radiation which are the marks of the hot and violent Universe. But it is not only light that can give us information about the cosmos. Neutrinos and cosmic rays also provide vital information. Finally, the detection by the LIGO experiment of gravitational waves from two merging black holes opened a new window in astrophysics. This video presents images of the cosmos as revealed by all these different messengers.
