How Big Is the Universe?: Planetarium Program

Presentation | January 19 – May 19, 2013 every Sunday & Saturday with exceptions | 3-3:45 p.m. | Lawrence Hall of Science, Planetarium

Lawrence Hall of Science (LHS)

Explore the skies in our interactive planetarium, where questions and activities are part of the program!

How Big is the Universe: One of the jobs of the Hubble Space Telescope is to see the most distant things in our Universe. But how do we tell how far away those things really are? Learn about various methods to determine astronomical distances as you hop on stepping stones to farther and farther places. We start in the planetarium and then blast off to the Moon, the Solar System, nearby stars, the Milky Way Galaxy, and beyond!
Recommended for ages 8 and up.

Programs are approximately 40 minutes, and are presented live with activities. Questions are encouraged!

Please note the age restrictions for each program. Children under 6 will not be admitted, except for programs listed for ages 4-8.
