[Mars & Beyond] Explore the Universe - Museum of Science revisit

Love space travel? Let's start one full-day space journey with the "Mars & Beyond" presentation at Exhibit Hall at 10 am. Then explore "Cosmic Light" at Exhibit Hall.

Cosmic Light: Almost everything we know about the universe comes from studying light. In this exhibit, visitors explore the Milky Way Galaxy to discover how different wavelengths on the electromagnetic spectrum can offer a range of information about our universe. Large-scale color photographs of celestial objects offer a window on the universe, revealing the births and deaths of stars, the vastness of space, and the stunning light of our Sun.

Lunch/snacks at 12:30 pm at cafe/restaurants in the museum.

At Planetarium 1:The Sky Tonight: Mars! 1:30 pm (Live interactive show) The planet Mars glitters like a red beacon in the night sky. To celebrate the August arrival of NASA's Curiosity rover to Mars, this live, interactive show features the red planet among the seasonal stars and constellations visible from New England. And with a little rocket fuel, you can visit and tour Mars using the latest high-resolution imagery and scientific data.

At Planetarium 2 (optional): Explore the Universe 3:30 pm: 40 min. (full-dome video and audio systems) Leave the Earth behind and take off with a Planetarium educator as your star pilot. Fly through the solar system, Milky Way, and beyond as you explore cosmic mysteries, see how objects interact in space, and hear about missions that are helping us understand the universe today. The newly renovated Charles Hayden Planetarium brilliantly showcases this new original show. This Planetarium is the most technologically advanced digital theater in New England.
