“The Universe and Art,” in just one exhibition, offers a diverse selection of approximately 200 items from across the globe and down the centuries, in multiple genres, from meteorites and fossils to historic astronomical material by Da Vinci and Galileo; mandalas; Taketori Monogatari (The Tale of the Bamboo Cutter) which can be called Japan's oldest sci-fi novel; installations by contemporary artists, and the latest from the front-line of space development. Comprising four sections: “How Have Humans through the Ages Viewed the Universe?” “The Universe as Space-Time” “A New View of Life - Do Aliens Exist?” and “Space Travel and the Future of Humanity,” the exhibition will offer novel, future-oriented views of the cosmos and mankind.

If you happen to be in Tokyo up until January 9th, 2017 a visit is highly recommended!
