60 years ago this week, the Space Age officially began with the launch of Sputnik 1. To celebrate, we’ll be running special weekend programming in the Science Gallery:

  • Build your own Black Brant rocket
  • Explore models of historic spacecraft
  • See a full-scale Sputnik and a model of Canada’s first satellite, Alouette 1

Watch a special showing of the Planetarium show, Astronaut at 1 pm & 4 pm

Astronaut

The exploration of space is the greatest journey humanity has ever undertaken.  What does it take to be part of the journey?  What does it take to be... an astronaut?  Narrated by Ewan McGregor (Obi-Wan Kenobi in the Star Wars prequels), Astronaut is the next best thing to being there. Feel the excitement of a space launch, experience astronaut training, and discover the dangers and opportunities of space exploration. This 35-minute show is designed for general audiences, and includes a live segment on the current night sky.
