The Cape Cod Museum of Natural History in Brewster continues its Nature Screen film series with “Telescope: Hunting the Edge of Space” a PBS NOVA documentary on Wednesday, November 3. and Wednesday, November 10, at 11:30 AM.
The documentary examines how a simple instrument, the telescope, has fundamentally changed our understanding of our place in the universe. What began as a curiosity, two spectacle lenses held a foot apart, ultimately revolutionized human thought across science, philosophy and religion. “Telescope” takes viewers on a global adventure of discovery, dramatizing the innovations in technology and the achievements in science that have marked the rich history of the telescope.
The film screening is free with museum admission. The Cape Cod Museum of Natural History is at 869 Main Street, Route 6A, in Brewster.
