Show Descriptions

LIFE: A Cosmic Story • Narrated by Jody Foster

LIFE: A Cosmic Story tells the 14-billion-year saga of how we came to be. It’s a journey from the microscopic view inside a plant cell to the vastness of our universe populated by billions of galaxies swirling in space. Life: A Cosmic Story begins in a redwood forest, then leaps backward billions of years to the origin of elements themselves. Continuing the journey, the show dives into the Milky Way Galaxy as it was several billion years ago, then leaps forward in time to we explore the effect that life has had on our planet. This 40-minute show includes a brief night sky update featuring the locations of the latest planet discoveries.


Manitoba Skies

Take a guided tour of the night sky! This show covers the current constellations, planets, and celestial events currently visible in Manitoba skies. The show is presented live by Planetarium staff, allowing current news and the latest discoveries to be highlighted.

 

 

In My Backyard with Fred Penner 

A classic returns! Join Winnipeg’s best-known children’s entertainer, Fred Penner, as he explores things large and small, from the colors of the rainbow, to the reasons for the seasons. The show has been completely re-imagined for the DIGISTAR fulldome video system. Young scientists are encouraged to sing along with entertaining songs and participate while learning about the planets, constellations, meteors, the moon and more. Recommended for children ages 4-7.

 

 

Ice Worlds

Ice shapes our world. It drives the climate, affects ocean currents, and reshapes land as it expands during ice ages. But ice melt from climate change is transforming our way of life. Explore these

changes and see Greenland without its ice shield. Travel to other worlds like Saturn, Titan and Europa to see how ice has shaped their landscapes.

Zula Patrol: Down To Earth

The zany cast of Zula Patrol stop a notorious polluter – and also learn about the formation of our planet and the evolution of its many life forms. The Zula Patrol: Down to Earth is based on the award-winning TV series, The Zula Patrol, now reaching 300 million households worldwide. This 35-minute show is designed for families with younger children and includes a short introduction to the current night sky.
