Scales of the Universe, presented by Planetarium Manager Omega Smith
Friday, Sept. 15, 6:30 p.m.
How big is the universe? Does it go on forever? What is the most distant object we can see? We’ll answer all of these questions and more in a special all-live presentation. Starting from the Earth, we’ll fly out of our solar system, beyond our galaxy the Milky Way and to the edge of the universe!
Relive the excitement of the early days of space exploration, from the launch of the first artificial satellite to the magnificent lunar landings and privately operated space flights. Be immersed and overwhelmed with an accurate, historic reconstruction of man’s first steps into space. Who were these men and women who took part in these death-defying endeavors? Witness their drive, their passion and their perseverance to explore in “Dawn of the Space Age.”
