Introducing Our Summer Planetarium Schedule

Introducing Our Summer Planetarium Schedule

April 10, 2018| Categories: Planetarium News, What's Happening

We’ve got brand new shows in the works for Summer 2018 and are pleased to announced our new fulldome film “Rosetta: A Lifetime Discovery”. Join the comet discoverer Klim Churyumov in the story about the origins of the Solar System and life on Earth. Meet the challenges of a 10 year long mission with Rosetta spacecraft and the “Philae” lander. Become the first one to find oneself on the comet surface!

12 years ago, in 2004, the Rosetta spacecraft was launched from the Kourou cosmodrome, whose mission included rendezvous with the 67R Churyumov-Gerasimenko comet and a controlled landing with the downlink module Philae.

Planting an artificial device on the nucleus of a comet is an extremely complex and ambitious task that the European Space Agency had set out to complete and successfully accomplished. The mission of Rosetta is long, but in this 30 minute planetarium show you’ll discover what it might have been like to ride along with Philae as it descended to the comet surface.

We will be previewing all of our new planetarium shows for Father’s Day week on Monday, June 18th through Wednesday, June 20th with our full summer schedule starting on Monday June 25th.
