Astronomy for Everyone: Size and Scale of the Universe, is a program that describes the universe from the very small to the very large that begins inside, enjoying incomparable photos and videos of our universe, and
ends outside, peering through a powerful telescope into the wonders of the cosmos.

The program is hosted by astronomer and former NASA consultant Kevin Manning, who not only travels the country bringing the stars to libraries and schools, but also worked with the Chandra X-Ray Observatory (launched on the space shuttle) with the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics and other places like Brookhaven National Laboratory. Manning launched his “Star Tour” series to help make science accessible and exciting for all ages.
“Our aim is to open new galaxies of inquiry and possibilities for the people we visit,” he said.

“We want everyone to be able to enjoy an educational and entertaining exploration of the universe, the
stars and other celestial wonders, as well as a refreshingly large perspective gained by looking up to
the stars.”
