Ice Worlds

The delicate balance between ice, water and the existence of life has been a topic of scientific inquiry for generations. In travels to the Arctic and Antarctic regions of our planet, we'll examine the ecosystems that exist and thrive there and learn how their survival is connected with our own. Beyond Earth, we'll see how the existence of ice shapes the landscape and the natural systems on other planets and moons in our Solar System. We’ll present a fulldome film, Ice Worlds, narrated by Academy Award nominated actress, Emily Watson, review initial findings of the New Horizons flyby of Ultima Thule, and explore the current night sky.

Seating is on a first-come, first-served basis. We accept walk-ins on stand-by for sold out shows.
