Einstein's Gravity Playlist

About Einstein's Gravity Playlist

Recommend for ages 10+, grades 5-12
Running Time: 35 minutes

Join Lucia, a PhD student in physics, on an exploration of how gravitational waves are formed, how they move through the universe, and how scientists like her work to hear them. These waves, first predicted by Albert Einstein and proven to exist nearly 100 years later, give us a new way to understand the universe itself!

For Everyone's Enjoyment

  • Children must be at least 4 years old to be admitted to regular public shows.

  • For your safety, there is no re-admittance if you leave during a show.
  • The planetarium is a dark environment with overhead motion & occasional loud sounds during a show. It is not recommended for guests who are sensitive to such conditions.
