OUR SOLAR SYSTEM
Let us take you on a journey through our solar system. From the sun at the centre of the solar system to Pluto in the Kuiper Belt. We’ll learn a bit about each planet along the way and even visit some moons that you may not have seen before. This is a great general space show with lots of “wow” moments!
What are stars? How are they born? Find out the answers to these questions and more in our Stars show. We’ll look at the constellations and listen to some stories around them and fly through a nebula to look at newly forming stars. We’ll also look at our own star, the sun, and learn how important it is to our planet, and all the other planets in our solar system. This show is particularly suited to younger children
ONE GIANT LEAP.
This planetarium show will take you through the history of human spaceflight, from Neil, Buzz and Michael’s adventures to the moon, to Elon Musk’s dreams of exploring Mars. Would you like to be the first person to land on Mars?
