Edelman Planetarium Public Show Schedule

  • Summer Schedule (July 1 to August 28, 2022)
    • Saturdays at 4:00pm – Black Holes
      • There’s a place from which nothing escapes, not even light, where time and space come to an end. At this point, inside this fantastic riddle, black holes exert their sway over the cosmos and our imaginations. Zip through other-worldly wormholes, experience the creation of the Milky Way galaxy and witness the violent death of a star and the subsequent birth of a black hole. Mathematical equations, cutting-edge science, and Einstein’s theories fill in gaps along the way, providing the most complete picture yet of this mysterious phenomenon. Can you feel the pull?
    • Saturdays at 5:30pm – Atlas of a Changing Earth
      • This is the story of how a revolution in one of the most basic of all human enterprises – the making of maps – is shedding new light on our planet’s evolution in the wake of rising global temperatures. Using stunning, latest-generation imagery from space, “Atlas of a Changing Earth” takes viewers into the dynamic processes causing coastal glaciers in Greenland and Antarctica to melt, and explores how rising seas could threaten coastlines the world over. These striking new images are produced by the confluence of satellites and supercomputers, revealing Earth in a degree of precise detail scarcely imagined a generation ago.
    • Sundays at 3:00pm – Spacepark 360: Infinity
      • The fastest fulldome show continues with SpacePark360: Infinity and 9 all-new rides! SpacePark360: Infinity is designed to recreate the experience of amusement park thrill rides — roller coasters, pendulums, inverters, and more. Seen from the rider’s perspective, audiences experience the apparent motion from the visual display, while reveling in the surrounding music and sound effects that accompany the scenes. There’s no narration, no science education standards or curriculum objectives; just some wild ride experiences, fantastic music, and a ton of fun!
  • Fall Schedule (September 2 to November 20, 2022)
    • Saturdays at 4:00pm – Forward! to the Moon
      • NASA’s 21st century Artemis program, named after the Greek moon goddess and twin of Apollo, is the next step in our mission to explore the universe and land the first woman and person of color on the surface of the Moon. Using innovative technologies to explore more of the lunar surface than ever before, NASA uses what they learn on and around the Moon to take the next giant leap: sending the first astronauts to Mars. Join Kari Byron from Crash Test World and MythBusters as she launches on a journey beyond the Earth towards a sustainable future in space.
    • Saturdays at 5:30pm – Phantom of the Universe
      • From the journey of protons racing through the world’s largest particle collider in Europe to up-close views of the Big Bang and emergent cosmos, Phantom of the Universe is designed to immerse you in the search for dark matter. Narrated by Academy Award winner Tilda Swinton, the show reveals the first hints of dark matter, a term coined by scientist Fritz Zwicky. It propels you to unlock the mystery of this phantom of the universe.
    • Sundays at 3:00pm – Rising Star
      • Go on an astronomical journey from our beginnings through the development of astronomy research in South Africa and discover what the future of astronomy holds for the country. In addition to introducing multi-wavelength and multi-messenger astronomy, Rising Star highlights the many remarkable South African facilities and some of their latest results, including unrestricted views of the 10-meter class Southern African Large Telescope and the most powerful radio telescope in the Southern Hemisphere, MeerKAT.
