APRIL SKY TOUR AND AHEAD TO THE PAST: THE SPACE PROGRAM'S FULL CIRCLE

ID : 56499   
« back to classes page
 This spring, we are pairing our popular monthly sky tours with astronomy topic talks and full dome planetarium shows.  We will take you on a tour of the current skies, highlighting visible planets, deep sky objects, and any upcoming special astronomical events. Once you've had your introductory tour, feel free to ask your astronomy questions! We'll use our state of the art planetarium visualization system to take you to see objects of curiosity and wonder.  Each evening will conclude with an immersive planetarium presentation about a different astronomical topic. 

Space enthusiasts around the world celebrate Yuri’s Night during April to commemorate milestones in space exploration.  This month, Tim Collins will lead a discussion that examines the state of global space exploration programs.   On July, 21, 2011, America saw the Space Shuttle Atlantis touch down for the last time at Edwards Air Force Base, ending the 30-year Space Shuttle Program.  Since then, what has been happening with the American Space Program and NASA?  Can the shuttle program be revived?  Is it true that Russia is the only country capable of sending US Astronauts to the space station and back?  As we approach the 50th anniversary of the greatest accomplishment by humans in space, take a look at where we are now and how we may be sliding a bit backward in time... (Ages 10-adult)
