    One World One Sky - Big Bird's Adventure

    September 6, 13, 20 at 11am

    One World, One Sky is a brilliant spectacle of light and color as the furry friends watch the stars twinkle over Sesame Street. Children attending the show can interact as they watch, draw constellations and count the time it takes the sun to set. The show aims to nurture a child's natural sense of wonder about the night sky while forging cross-cultural connections, and bridging kids across nations through a common bond in learning about the sky together. This show was a big hit with our public show audiences.

    Coming Soon - Back To the Moon For Good

    In case you haven't heard, the Moon is trending again...and in a big way. Like in the glory days of the 1960's and 1970's, our big white space neighbor is enjoying the attention of lunar explorers. Only this time, they're going back to the moon for good.

    The educational 24-minute Google Lunar XPRIZE fulldome planetarium show, Back To the Moon for Good, chronicles teams around the world competing for the largest incentivized prize in history, by landing robotic spacecraft on the Moon for the first time in more than 40 years. 

    To win the Google Lunar XPRIZE, a team must land a robotic spacecraft on the Moon, navigate 500 meters over the lunar surface, and send video, images and data back to Earth. This global competition is designed to spark imagination and inspire a renewed commitment to space exploration, not by governments or countries - but by the citizens of the world.
