Fleischmann Planetarium

Join us at 7 p.m. Friday, Nov. 22 or Saturday, Nov. 23 for a double feature!

"Cells and Tissue" features cells and how tissue can be grown in labs.

"The Body Code" Fly through the carotid artery; explore the eye, brain, ear, and heart. Then, shrink into a cell to see its nucleus and DNA within. Discover how DNA programs the body's cells to form the circulatory and nervous systems. Then watch from inside as we use lasers to fight disease at the cellular level.

Friday's event includes a talk on "Simulating the Body" and activities involving a Geiger Counter and infrared camera. Tickets are $9 and free for members.

The Fleischmann Planetarium

The planetarium serves up to 50,000 visitors a year, including hundreds of school field trips that introduce students, K-12, to the wonders of the universe. We invite children and adults alike to stop by and experience what's happening.

About Fleischmann Planetarium

Fleischmann Planetarium is part of the University of Nevada, Reno and Extended Studies. Open to the public, we offer daily digital planetarium shows in our dome theater, field trips and educational outreach in Earth and space science, and telescope sessions on the first and fourth Friday evenings at the Planetarium (weather permitting). Built in 1963 and originally called the “Fleischmann Atmospherium-Planetarium," we were the first planetarium in the world to project full-dome movies (of time-lapse clouds and weather phenomena).
