PlanetQuest: Discovering Worlds Around Other Stars continues through Nov. 20 at WKU’s Hardin Planetarium. Show times are 7 p.m. Tuesdays and Thursdays and 2 p.m. Sundays. Admission is free and the 45-minute program is suitable for all ages. Note that the show will begin on time, with no late entrance permitted.
About the show: A new era in the exploration of the universe has begun. Less than 20 years ago, we discovered the first alien solar system around a star like our own Sun. Since then we have used multiple methods to identify thousands of worlds around other stars — from scorching hot giants orbiting their stars in just a few days to planets orbiting in systems with more than just one star. New planets are being discovered at an exhilarating pace; bringing us closer to finding an Earthlike world — perhaps harboring life. Join the Hardin Planetarium for an interactive presentation aiming at one of humanity’s oldest questions: Are we alone?
