This is a two-part show. In the first part, join our astronomer in the Zeidler Dome for a live exploration of our Moon. We will look at the Moon’s motion in the sky, explore the various features on the Moon, and then see how Canadian Scientists and Engineers have made and will be making contributions to lunar exploration, with a look at who might be our Canadian astronaut soon to be going to the Moon!
In the second part, the full-dome show “Forward! To the Moon!” will have Kari Byron from Crash Test World and MythBusters launch us on a journey beyond the Earth towards a sustainable future in space.
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. Produced by Fiske Planetarium in collaboration with TEND Studio.
