Watch simulations of the beginning of the Universe and discover how it has evolved over time. Find out more about the creation of elements within stars and the chemical transformations they undergo.

Stand with plasma balls and use hand-held spectrometers to split light into an array of separate colours and observe the unique visual ‘fingerprints’ produced by different elements.
