Natural History Museum - Otherworlds: Visions of our Solar System exhibition now open

Natural History Museum
 We've partnered with artist and curator Michael Benson on a major space photography exhibition, Otherworlds: Visions of our Solar System. Travel beyond Earth to encounter the most remote realms of our solar system.

Layers of data from European Space Agency and NASA space missions have been processed to create composite photographs. The images recreate visually stunning sights of planets, moons, comets, asteroids and the sun as the human eye would see them, joining together art and science.

Michael Benson comments: 'Otherworlds is a retrospective survey of an entire genre of photography and an overview of the solar system's quite dazzling diversity of landscapes.'

The exhibition also features a soundscape of original music by Brian Eno.
