      Public Shows-Earth to the Universe

      From Earth to the Universe--The night sky, both beautiful and mysterious, has been the subject of campfire stories, ancient myths and awe for as long as there have been people. A desire to comprehend the Universe may well be humanity's oldest shared intellectual experience. Yet only recently have we truly begun to grasp our place in the vast cosmos. Learn about this journey of celestial discovery, from the theories of the ancient Greek astronomers to today's grandest telescopes. Viewers can revel in the splendour of the various worlds in the Solar System and the ferocity of the scorching Sun. From Earth to the Universe then leaves our home to take the audience out to the colourful birthplaces and burial grounds of stars, and still further out, beyond the Milky Way, to the unimaginable immensity of a myriad galaxies. Along the way, the audience will learn about the history of astronomy, the invention of the telescope, and today's giant telescopes that allow us continue to probe ever deeper into the Universe. No admission after show starts. The presentation currently features a LIVE astronomer star talk with question and answer time, and the feature length full-dome movie From Earth to the Universe. This presentation appropriate for ages 8 years and older. Total show duration, about one hour. Tickets prices are $10.00 each for all attending. Order tickets from the WWU Box Office. Tickets not sold at the door. See the website for more information.

      Cost: 10.00
