Curator Michael Benson says: “Over the last 60 years, the story of our journey through the solar system has unfolded. Combining rocket science with the innate human drive to explore, after millennia of speculation about the planets, the first expeditions to the solar system’s far-flung worlds have taken place.

“Through the agency of a small squadron of increasingly sophisticated robotic spacecraft, we’ve seen Earth dwindle to the size of a pearl, and then a pixel, as we voyaged far beyond any place ever directly visited by human beings.”

The exhibition, featuring incredible images of planetary landscapes taken from NASA missions, runs until May 15.
