Planetarium Show – Our Universal Address
Jun 26 @ 12:00 pm – 12:30 pm

Looking at the night sky, you could easily be forgiven for thinking that the Earth is the center of everything. In fact, philosophers and scientists believed just that for over 1500 years until the dawn of the 16th century. So where are we really in the universe? This show attempts to answer these questions using cutting edge discoveries in space science. Over 30 minutes we will travel from the Earth to the very edges of the known universe, exploring along the way just a few of the many science missions NASA and others have develop to uncover the mysteries of the cosmos.
