The Sun: Living With Our StarThis autumn, the Science Museum hosts blockbuster exhibition The Sun: Living With Our Star. The biggest ever exhibition to be staged about the Sun, it explores humanity's ever-changing relationship with our nearest star, looking into its power, beauty and dark side though a series of spectacular interactive experiences, unique artefacts and striking imagery. Items on display include beautiful early Nordic Bronze Age artefacts, which reveal ancient beliefs of how the Sun was transported across the sky; details of upcoming NASA and ESA solar missions; and an astronomical spectroscope made for Norman Lockyer, who used it to identify the element helium in 1868.
