Planetarium Show Descriptions

Hubble's Renaissance: Thanks to a dramatic repair mission, the Hubble Space Telescope has another chance to capture more stunning pictures like only it can.

Space Racers: Mars Canyon Race: In this episode from the PBS series, the Racers determine who is faster, Eagle or Raven.

No Show: Have to take vacation some time.

Venus: The Hostile Planet: Constantly shrouded in clouds, Venus could once have been Earth's twin with oceans and continents, even simple life, but as the Sun matured, Venus became the hottest planet in our Solar System.
