PROGRAM DESCRIPTION
Take a tour of the cosmos and consider our place within it. We begin our journey on our home planet, Earth, and move progressively farther and farther away until we reach a scale and distance almost beyond our comprehension. Using state of the art software, we are able to investigate that which humankind has explored and discuss the exploration we wish to do. This tour will give your model universe a whole new outlook.

PROGRAM STRUCTURE
Using state of the art software, our Planetarium Coordinator will guide you through a 3-D computer screen of our universe. You will be able to see spatial depth, big-bang exploration, view close-ups of various spacecrafts, while in space, that have made these images possible, as well as discuss ongoing space projects.  And all of this exploration happens from the comfort of your chair.
