Recent advances in telescope technology have enabled new incredible discoveries
throughout the universe. Distant infant galaxies are now visible, shining from billions of
years in the past. Closer to home, planets in other star systems are being discovered by the
thousands.New discoveries are also inspiring intriguing questions: Why and how has the
