SHOW DESCRIPTIONS

LIFE: A Cosmic Story

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.

 

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.
