Ventures Through Our Solar System
The planetarium is transformed into a space transport as we buckle up our seat belts and join the countdown for a live, immersive, and interactive adventure to uncover the latest NASA planetary discoveries throughout our solar system. Using the planetarium's full-dome digital projection system, our exploration will include the surface of Mars with NASA's newest rover, Curiosity; visits to volcanoes on the moons of Jupiter and Saturn; finding diamonds in the atmosphere of Uranus; and much more. A brief tour of the current seasonal night sky precedes this live, presenter-led program.
