Exploding Universe

PG | 40 min. | Educational Planetarium Show

Periodically scheduled on our normal show scheduled;
available for groups bookings

Out of devastation comes new creation. Explosive events have shaped and transformed the Universe, as well as the Earth itself, into what it is today. And not all of them have been on a grand scale.

Throughout this constant evolution of the Universe, some of the most elementary particles have still managed to endure. This show follows the path of one of those “particles,” a proton, as it participates in some of nature’s most astounding events of rebirth and renewal: from supernovae and colliding black holes to supervolcanoes and proton collisions. Come and experience the Universe’s ultimate blowups.
