Phantom Of The Universe: The Hunt For Dark Matter
Feb 24 @ 12:30 pm – 1:00 pm

Phantom of the Universe is a new planetarium show that will showcase an exciting exploration of dark matter, from the Big Bang to its anticipated discovery at the Large Hadron Collider. The show will reveal the first hints of its existence through the eyes of Fritz Zwicky, the scientist who coined the term “dark matter.” It describes the astral choreography witnessed by Vera Rubin in the Andromeda galaxy and then plummets deep underground to see the most sensitive dark matter detector on Earth, housed in a former gold mine. From there, it journeys across space and time to the Large Hadron Collider at CERN, speeding alongside particles before they collide in visually stunning explosions of light and sound, while learning how scientists around the world are collaborating to track down the constituents of dark matter.

Our Closest Celestial Neighbor, The Moon!
Feb 24 @ 1:30 pm – 2:30 pm

The Moon has fascinated us for generations. From the ancient Greeks waxing philosophically about the meaning of the Moon to astronauts putting their heavy boots into the dusty surface of the Sea of Tranquillity, the Moon sticks out as our closest and most talked about celestial body in the sky. In this show, learn about a mission to the Moon too look for water, see the shape of the man in the Moon, and learn how the lunar cycle affects our lives every day.

Venus: Earth’s Sister?
Feb 24 @ 1:30 pm – 2:30 pm

Venus seems so much like Earth. It’s nearly the same size and mass. It has a substantial atmosphere. For a long time people imagined that life could flourish on it. But as we gradually gathered more information about this putative twin world, the less and less like Earth we realized it was. How has our understanding of Venus changed over time? What do we know of it today? Was Venus ever habitable? Or was it always a planet hostile to life as we know it? This 30 minute program will address these questions and summarize the results of recent research.

Stars and Shadows: How The Light From Distant Stars Reveals New Worlds & New Mysteries
Feb 26 @ 1:00 pm – 2:00 pm

Since the first discovery of a planet orbiting another star, in 1995, astronomers have discovered over 3,500 new worlds to explore. These exoplanets range from giants many times bigger than Jupiter to dwarves smaller than Mercury, and they orbit stars of many sizes, temperatures, and colors. By understanding how light energy propagates through space, we can discover what covers the surfaces of these worlds, and whether they might harbor life. What would our Solar System look like from light-years away as we progress into being a space-faring civilization. Perhaps the silhouettes and shadows we see might reveal something like possible evidence for the existence of other civilizations. Let’s look at the light and see what we can learn!

Tour Of The Solar System
Feb 26 @ 1:00 pm – 2:00 pm

Ever looked up, seen a dot that wasn’t twinkling, and wondered what it was? Chances are, you were looking at a planet! The 8 planets of our solar system are all fascinating in their own unique ways from the huge temperature changes on Mercury, the thick clouds of Venus, or the Great Red Spot on Jupiter. In this 50 minute show, we’ll explore the planets in our solar system and one very famous dwarf-planet. You’ll learn about the latest missions to explore these fascinating places and fly live, in 3D through our solar system. Unlike most of our 50 minute shows, this show is perfect for all ages!
