This date marks the begining of WKU's three week participation in the nationwide residence hall energy and water reduction competition for college campuses called Campus Conservation Nationals 2013. It is also the begining of a statewide energy reduction competitioin between WKU, UofL, UK, and Berea. All WKU students, faculty, and staff who use the residence halls are highly encouraged to make a conscious effort to turn off and unplug all unnecessary lights and electronic devices during this time.
The "Curiosity: Drilling into Mars' Past" show uses the Planetarium's new digital technology to move through the solar system as we look in on the new evidence from the Mars Science Laboratory rover ("Curiosity") that, in the distance past, Mars had a habitat conducive to life. Combining full dome videos, the simulation potential of our new digital projector, amazing images shot right on Mars, and stirring music, our current show is suitable for all ages and airs every Tuesday and Thursday nights at 7 pm and Sunday at 2 pm.
