Cosmic Origin Spectrograph (C.O.S.) aboard the Hubble Space Telescope is allowing us an unprecedented view into the vast spaces between galaxies that surrounds our own Milky Way.  Join us in the exploration of this hidden universe as we decode the secrets to the origins of the cosmos. The show covers the basics of spectroscopy at a high level, and touches on the processing of galactic and extragalactic gas. Other topics include the use of quasars as background light sources, cosmic evolution, and the development of large-scale structure.
