Space Aliens: Looking for Life in the Universe
Space Aliens: Looking for Life in the Universe Friday, July 20 8:00 PM @ O. Wayne Rollins Planetarium

Join our "experts" on alien life- one hopeful, the other skeptical- as they try to convince each other whether or not life exists beyond the Earth. Follow their astrobiology arguments from the ocean floor to a journey across the galaxy! From ancient philosophers to modern-day scientist souring the sky for exoplanets, humans have always wondered who else might be "out there." This all-new show takes visitors on an incredible journey in an attempt to answer the ultimate question of the Universe: Are we alone?

Faster than Light: The Dream of Interstellar Flight Friday, August 17 8:00 PM @ O. Wayne Rollins Planetarium

The impulse to strike out into the unknown—to see what’s over the horizon—is as old as humanity. Today, a whole new horizon beckons. Scientists now believe that our galaxy is filled with solar systems, including billions of Sun-like stars with planets similar to Earth. Astronomers are racing to find habitable worlds, but once we find them, how will we ever get there? How long will it take? What rocket designs might one day conquer the voids of space? Narrated by well-known actor Sean Bean, this program dazzles audiences with virtual rides aboard spacecraft of the future, which use breakthrough concepts in physics designed to achieve ultra-high speeds. How far can our technology take us? Click here to purchase tickets online.
