Show Descriptions

Robo-kids Cy and Annie, and their dog, Armstrong, get more than they expected from their class field trip. Explore the sun, Earth and moon. Race along on the moon’s surface, collect an asteroid sample and survive a solar storm.

Imagine the ultimate space vacation! For space travelers of all ages, this search for the best destinations in the galaxy takes us to Pluto, through the rings of Saturn, across the storms of Jupiter and beyond.

Is reality the interaction of time, space, particles and forces, or a hallucination created by billions of neurons in our bodies? The show is an exploration of physics, quantum mechanics, inner and outer space, and the concept of the multiverse through the lens of art and music.

Fly through the carotid artery, and 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.

Explore science, culture and legend in Mexico’s jungles and learn how the Maya built cities and temples aligned to movements of the solar system. Mathematical knowledge helped the Maya observe astronomical events with great accuracy and develop a precise calendar.

Based on the popular book and website Bad Astronomy by Phil Plait, this wacky-but-wise show entertains audiences of all ages with an inside look at out-of-this-world myths and misconceptions, including astrology, the moon hoax, UFOs and others.

Pink Floyd's rock album Dark Side of the Moon is presented in an immersive HD animation of color and surround-sound.
