DVAA Night At Mallon Planetarium
"Faster than Light" Recommended 4th Grade through Adult.
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. Scientists now believe that our galaxy is filled with solar systems, including up to 9 billion Sun-like stars with planets similar to Earth.
Faster Than Light: the Dream of Interstellar Flight will dazzle audiences with virtual rides aboard spacecraft of the future. They are based on whole new technologies designed to achieve ultra-high speeds, using exotic next generation rocket fuels and breakthrough concepts in physics. How far can our technology take us?
Since DVAA's last visit, the entire planetarium has been renovated, from the dome down to the chairs!
Thursday, February 29, 2024, 7:00 PM until 8:00 PM
