The fantastic images of the Universe captured by humanity’s fleet of ground and space-based telescopes are largely responsible for the magical appeal that astronomy has on lay people. Indeed, popular images of the cosmos can engage the general public not only in the aesthetics of the visual realm, but also in the science of the knowledge and understanding behind them. IYA2009 is an unprecedented opportunity to present astronomy to the global community in a way that has never been done before. The “From Earth to the Universe” project is an exhibition arranged by the IYA2009 that will bring these images to a wider audience in non-traditional venues.
