Travel To Otherworlds: Stunning Space Photography
Now the Natural History Museum brings us Otherworlds — Michael Benson's 77 breathtaking composite images from NASA and European Space Agency photographs, in an exhibition that spans both science and art.
There should be an accompanying soundtrack; this wasn't on during the press view but to be honest we didn't need music to marvel at these wonderful large scale photographs. Solar flares, the moon transiting across the sun and a beautifully composed image of a crescent moon and crescent Earth in one shot. These are some of the highlights in an inspiring show.
Unlike most other museum exhibitions, the science is kept to a minimum, and this gives each image the room to shine. OK, it's not quite Visions of the Universe, but this will still leave you reeling.
Otherworlds: Visions of our Solar System is on at Natural History Museum until 15 May. Tickets are £9.90 for adults, concessions available.
