Planetarium Awareness Days May 3 and 4

A “finals week” tradition continues with our 4th “Planetarium Awareness Days.” The show offerings will vary a little each day, so check the schedule below for details. This time, we’re debuting yet another new show! Jack Horkheimer’s “Child of the Universe.”

Mankind’s search for a cosmic identity has brought him from the flattering and secure notion that the Earth was the center of the whole of creation to a cosmology so awesome that entire galaxies seem lost and insignificant. ‘Child of the Universe’ deals with the fundamental questions raised whenever humans contemplate their place in the scheme of all that exists. Cutting through theoretical arguments and technical jargon, it seeks answers not expressed in the limited vocabulary of science but in the unlimited and universal language of the heart.

Thursday, May 3
