Dinosaurs vs. Asteroids (new show)

Spoiler alert: the dinos lose. In this live show, we’ll follow the clues that reveal how a giant asteroid impact 66 million years ago was responsible for the extinction of the dinosaurs. Then we’ll follow along with NASA’s ongoing OSIRIS-REx mission as it returns samples from the most potentially hazardous asteroid currently known. After all that, we’ll fly our Digistar-spaceship to anywhere in the cosmos you’d like to go… (live show, 30 min)

Choose Your Space Adventure

With our new Digistar7 system, we can basically turn the planetarium into a pretend spaceship. And we'll take it wherever in the Universe the audience wants to go! (live show, 30 min)
