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.

Climb aboard a magical cardboard rocket with two young adventurers and experience an up-close look at each of our solar system’s planets. Discover the secret to making this seemingly impossible trip, and gain a new sense of wonder about space along the way.

The journey to reach the stars began with our earliest dreams of flying and led to landing on the moon. This new show offers a glimpse into tomorrow, and the possibilities of what is to come by way of private space developments and national space programs.

From the outer reaches of space and time, through wondrous galaxies, to the majesty of our solar system, take a grand tour of the universe in Ultimate Universe. 

Journey through one of the most mystifying phenomena in the universe, exploring the latest discoveries and examining recent scientific theories while viewing simulations of black holes and their cosmic effects.

 

Imagery from all over the world is the backdrop for photorealistic 2D and 3D animations, which are used to explain both how human vision works - and how light travels through space. The second show includes an orientation to constellations and current objects in the night sky.

The evening event includes changing dome shows and live programs.

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