Universe - from naked eye observation to the James Webb Space Telescope (new edition)


An accurate observation of the universe, a path that starts from the naked eye and reaches radio telescopes via optical telescopes. The progressive advance of technology has allowed the use of ultraviolet, of unimaginable energy, like mergers between black holes or neutron stars.
