Follow the journey of a single photon as it is produced in a distant star, before traveling across the vast expanse of space to land on someone's retina. This fulldome planetarium show explores some of the fascinating processes of the cosmos, from astrophysics to the biology of the eye and brain. Funded through a generous grant from Zeiss, the show is narrated by astronomer and science communicator, Neil deGrasse Tyson.

Are you ready for a really big trip? For thousands of years, mankind thought that the Earth was the center of the Universe. Thanks to our curiosity, imagination and urge to explore, we now know that planets like our Earth are nothing special in the cosmos. The Sun is just one ordinary star among hundreds of billions in our galaxy, the Milky Way. With the world's most powerful telescopes, we are able to explore more and more of the Universe. What we have found so far has surpassed even the wildest expectations of scientists as well as authors of science fiction. Most stars have planets, it turns out they are more common than we thought. A huge diversity of different worlds is out there, just waiting to be discovered.

Our public shows are not well-suited for families with young children. For visitors with children 5-10 years old, we suggest our shorter family shows. They run about half an hour, do not include a live presentation and cost $2 per person.

Sundays, November 5, 12, and 19, 2 p.m.

The Little Star That Could: An average star is born from a great cloud of gas and dust. We follow his journey through space, searching for planets and a name for himself. He encounters stars of all sizes and temperatures, including a hot blue star and the double stars Goldie and Sapphire, but none of them can give him any planets. Finally, the Milky Way speaks to him, and reveals where his planets have been hiding. His planets tell him all about themselves, and give him his special name (no, I'm not going to reveal it here: you'll have to come see the show!).
