The Shows

Stars

Set out on a voyage across the infinite universe, between distant galaxies and billions of stars of every type and kind, ever changing as they live, die, and are reborn. A gripping show that tells the story of the most ancient stars and those yet to be born. Discover the beauty and destructiveness of the universe we live in.

Recommended for ages 5 and above

Astronaut

Do you dream of taking off for space? Start training! Space travel is not only a huge technological challenge, it is no less challenging physically. Astronauts have to be in excellent physical condition to handle the extreme stresses of space flight, and become accustomed to weightless conditions. Discover how astronauts train for space flight and what special equipment NASA uses for their training.

Recommended for ages 5 and above

Tow Small Pieces of Glass

People have always watched the stars, but nobody did it like Galileo! Galileo improved the telescope (which was invented in the Netherlands by lens grinders making eyeglasses), and used it for systematic observations of the stars. His discoveries and drawings caused a revolution in the perception and understanding of space that is still in effect today. Come and see the wonders of the universe as revealed by the telescope lens, in a show that will introduce you to the world of the Italian thinker and scientist, living over 400 years ago, who made the telescope what it is today.
