Modern telescopes enable breathtaking discoveries scarcely imaginable by earlier generations, including black holes, dark matter, and thousands of planets beyond our Solar System.

This sheds light on a universe apparently has been growing more mature, complex, and hospitable for life for nearly 14 billion years. But these discoveries also cast doubts on traditional biblical and theological understandings of human uniqueness.

What is our sense of human identity and significance in a universe that may be teeming with life? How do new images of the heavens inspire renewed philosophical, theological, and artistic reflection on the meaning of human life in the cosmos?
