Verse is a project about the Universe & our place in it,
with a scientific foundation & an artful frame.
Inspiring educational awe & personal reflection, Verse aspires to remind us that we are not only deeply connected to the Universe, but we are made of the Universe. Come along as we explore our beautiful, ridiculous, poetic cosmos!
