Upcoming Events

Planetarium Pop-Up: EXPLORE

Science, Education, Family
EXPLORE is an odyssey to the planet Mars, seen through a lens of human history and scientific development. Three years in the making, the show skillfully illustrates ancient astronomy and the motions of celestial objects that fascinated Johannes Kepler. Explore is a beautifully visualized trip through the history of astronomy and shows the story of humanity’s fascination with the stars — from ancient stargazers and astrologers to the breakthrough discoveries of Nicolaus Copernicus and Johannes Kepler.
