National official inauguration of the itinerant exhibition organized by the Leiden University with UNESCO.

Cosmic Light: Beyond the bulb , which has its national premiere at the Museu da Luz, is an international exhibition that shows the incredible variety of light in nature. Light is today, perhaps more than it ever was, the raw material of scientists, artists and intellectuals and this exhibition shows that multidisciplinary dimension of Light. The images exhibited were chosen by experts for their scientific content, stunning beauty and ability to engage wide audiences.

The exhibition is produced by the International Astronomical Union, SPIE (International Society for Optics and Photonics), Space Telescope NASA/Chandra X-ray and Leiden University in this International Year of Light.
Curator: Pedro Russo
Coordination: Museu da Luz
Production: Rafael Monterde, Maria Gaivão, Odile Bouchard, Arianna Weingarten, Joshua Borrow
