New Planetarium Show

Beginning Saturday, September 7, the DuPont Planetarium began showing a new program - "Through the Eyes of the Hubble Space Telescope." This planetarium show uses slides, video, and the Digistar II projector to tell the story of the Hubble Space Telescope. Visitors will learn about the telescope repair mission by shuttle astronauts, relive the stunning impact of Comet Schoemaker-Levy 9 with Jupiter, visit the birthplaces of stars and planets, view the edge of a super massive black hole, witness a remarkable supernova explosion, glimpse clusters of galaxies at the very limits of the observable universe, and experience many other wonders.
