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!
