"Beyond the Light" is one of a series of educational videos about astronomy. In this 30-minute presentation by Dr. Chantal Balkowski, astronomer at the Paris Observatory, she explains in detail how astrophysicists learn about the Universe using light (or rather electromagnetic radiation all across the spectrum) and ever more powerful telescopes.

The related video is a short creative introduction to the theme (see vimeo.com/33085064).
