Perfect Little Planet
Imagine the ultimate space vacation! Discover our solar system through a new set of eyes – a family from another star system seeking the perfect vacation spot. Fly over the surface of Pluto, our best known Dwarf Planet. Dive over the ice cliffs of Miranda. Sail through the rings of Saturn. Feel the lightning storms of Jupiter, and walk on the surface of Mars. Which destination would you choose? A solar system journey for space travelers of all ages. This 35-minute show is designed for families with children and includes an introduction to the current night sky.
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, setting the stage for the story of life. We then leap backward bil-lions of years to the origin of elements themselves. Continuing our journey, we dive into the Milky Way Galaxy as it was several bil-lion years ago, then leap forward in time, as 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.
