Planetarium Show: “Faster than Light: The Dream of Interstellar Flight” Narrated by Sean Bean

September 29, 2019 @ 12:30 pm - 1:30 pm

$4 – $6

The impulse to strike out into the unknown, to see what’s over the horizon… is as old as humanity. Today, a whole new horizon beckons. Astronomers are racing to find habitable worlds, including any that might exist in the neighborhood of our Sun. But if we find one, how will we ever get there? How long will it take? What rocket designs might one day conquer the voids of space? Take a virtual ride aboard spacecraft of the future based on whole new technologies designed to achieve ultra‐high speeds, which might provide ways to travel to new worlds.

Watch the trailer here!
