When astronomers study the universe, they’re often using telescopes that cost millions or even billions of dollars to build. Luckily for the rest of us, there are still plenty of incredible things to see in the sky with the more affordable models.

We make science kits now! Go to http://UniverseUnboxed.com to learn more, order one online, or find them in a store near you.

Host: Caitlin Hofmeister
