Humble Telescope - A 3D universe Simulator

Many of us are curious about the universe around us,
however for most of us the task of star gazing is out
of reach. Light pollution in our cities prevents us from
seeing the marvel that is the night sky.

The Humble Telescope is designed as an interactive
civic sculpture that brings the wonders of space down
to earth and into our cities, to encourage us learn more
about the universe and perhaps appreciate our own
world a little more.

Inside the telescope exists a 3D simulation of our entire
known universe. Pointing the telescope in any direction
immediately shows us what exists in that area of space,
so now we can get a greater understanding of where
the planets are and where we live in the Milky Way
