Exoplanets: Worlds of Wonder
Join mankind’s first space probe as it journeys outside our solar system to the many new worlds astronomers are discovering beyond. Visit gas giants caught in a deadly dance with their host stars, frozen rogue planets hurling through space, molten rocky worlds now known to science and new planets drifting comfortably within the Goldilocks Zone, the area around a star where Earth-like worlds may exist. Audiences will also learn new insight about our Earth, Moon, Sun and the remarkable Solar System we inhabit. For more information on this show, click anywhere in this block.
Tour the cosmos with astrophysicist Dr. Stacy Palen as your guide! Cosmic Journey tells the story of the universe from a uniquely human perspective. Drift through images from the Hubble Space Telescope and other NASA Great Observatories in a fulldome experience like no other.
