We are surrounded by an astronomical zoo of familiar and curious objects, from asteroids and zodiacal dust to Alpha Centauri and the centre of the Milky Way. Through the eyes of the biggest and best telescopes, we are able to see the extraordinary beauty of the universe in spectacular detail. Chris Lintott, longlisted author for the 2013 Royal Society Winton Prize for Science Books, discusses the many marvels of the cosmos and takes us on the greatest tour ever - a tour of the universe.
