Tour the cosmos with our mobile planetarium. Currently placed in Hangar B, our 25 foot planetarium enables group tours, field trips, and regular guests to take a tour of our skies and beyond with seasonal astronomy programs.
- To Space & Back -the international award-winning To Space & Back takes audiences on an incredible journey from the far reaches of our known universe to our own planet. It is an extraordinary story of human ingenuity and incredible engineering, describing how the technology that transports us through space is paving the way for the devices and apps we use every day.Space — our greatest adventure, is shaping our daily lives. It’s shrinking the world into a gadget that fits into the palm of your hand — but it doesn’t stop there. This is the amazing story of how space exploration is now part of our everyday life. What’s happening above is coming back down to Earth.The show explores the way each of us has been changed by the discoveries made by the international space program. From the devices we use every day to the tools that are breaking new ground in medicine and engineering, we can thank space exploration for making our modern lives possible.
