A collaboration between the South Australian Museum, the Museum of Discovery (MOD) at the University of South Australia and the Hubble Space Telescope Outreach Project has inspired design students to create artworks that respond to images taken by the telescope.

The works are being displayed at the South Australian Museum from 22 September 2017 to 28 January 2018.
