Hardin Planetarium


SpaceShip Earth!

Our Place In Space

(Runs from Tuesday, January 7, 2020 through Thursday, February 20, 2020)


Where do we stand in the cosmos?

This question has been asked by philosophers from every age, but in this show, we answer that question with astrophysical knowledge and the assistance of a well-known celebrity and his popular song. It's one thing to comprehend the size of the Earth; it is quite another to understand the velocity with which we move through space and the size and distance of everything around us. Join the staff at Hardin Planetarium for a show encompassing planets, stars, and even our own Milky Way Galaxy in stunning 360-degree fulldome technology! Remember: There is no way to sit still on a planet like Earth.

Free of charge and suitable for all ages. 60 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.
