Ice Worlds come to O. Wayne Rollins Planetarium Jan. 26

YOUNG HARRIS, Ga. — Curious about the frozen vistas of our solar system? Stop by the O. Wayne Rollins Planetarium for the Ice Worlds show Friday, Jan. 26, to learn more about the critical relationship between ice and life.

“We don’t think about the role ice plays in the life cycle, but in the outer reaches of our solar system, many of the planets – like Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus and Neptune – have rocky, icy cores at their center,” said Lauren Albain, Planetarium director. “This show will look at that and how studying our neighbors in space increases understanding of the natural cycles and human influence on ice, snow and water on Earth and its ever-changing climate.”

The show begins at 8 p.m. Friday. Tickets can also be purchased online via Eventbrite by visiting the following link: https://www.yhc.edu/academics/math-science/rollins-planetarium/public-shows Purchasing tickets online in advance is recommended, since planetarium shows often sell out.

For planetarium shows, guests are encouraged to arrive early for best seats.

Public planetarium shows, with the exception of Cosmic Concerts, include a live-narrated “season stargazing” segment in addition to the featured full-dome program.

Planetarium Admission:

  • $5 Adults per show

  • Free for Children under 4 years of age
