Our Current Show


30 years of a telescope with vision

(Runs Tuesday, April 14 thru Thursday,  May 24, 2020)

 Hubble Space Telescope


Launched in 1990, the Hubble Space Telescope (HST) is still collecting breathtakingly beautiful images of our universe. HST is arguably the most successful scientific instrument in human history, contributing to discoveries that have rewritten our understanding of the cosmos – from planets to the lives of stars, to black holes, quasars, and the large-scale structure of our universe. Join us for a cosmic tour designed around the best and most evocative observations made by astronomers using the Hubble Space Telescope.


Free of charge and suitable for all ages. 50 minute running time, with time for questions at the end of the presentation. Please note that the show will begin on time, with no late entrance permitted.
