Evening Planetarium Star Theatre Shows
 
LIFE: A COSMIC STORY
How did life on Earth begin? This tantalizing question forms the basis of the H.R. MacMillan Space Centre's newest planetarium star theatre show. Begin your journey by shrinking down to enter a single redwood leaf, and discover that all life on Earth shares a common ancestry. Then, travel through time to witness key events since the Big Bang that set the stage for life. Along the way, you will see two scenarios for the dawn of life on early Earth, and discover how our planet has changed since those microscopic beginnings. Narrated by Jodie Foster.
 
DARK
Dr. Alan Duffy is an Astronomer, and is looking for something that is very hard to find. Imagine trying to search for something that you can't see. You don't know what it looks like, what it's made of, or where it is. But you do know that nearly 80% of the mass of the universe is made of it. At least we've been able to name it. Learn how the mystery of dark matter has changed our understanding of the Universe.
