Have you ever wondered if a lava planet was real? Can life exist within an underground ocean? Produced by and only showing at your Art & Science Museum, Star Wars: The Worlds Within answers these questions and many more by taking audience members on a journey through the Star Wars' planets, moons, and star systems.
This 40-minute, fulldome, original planetarium show follows the Star Wars story from the original trilogy through the prequels, and along the way examines the beloved fictional planets and how they relate to real-life planets and moons in our solar system, as well as recently discovered exoplanets and exomoons far beyond our own stellar neighborhood.
Travel into deep space and learn more about the very real extra-solar worlds that exist in the Milky Way galaxy and how they compare to your favorite Star Wars' planets such as Coruscant, Naboo, Tatooine, Mustafar, and many more. Not only that, but Star Wars: The Worlds Withintakes a critical look at some of the science within the films such as what would really happen during a trip through an asteroid belt, and what it would take to destroy a planet.
During the show's premiere on December 15, you'll also be entered to win a Star Wars planetarium to take home.
For ages 3 and up. This and other planetarium shows are included with general Museum admission.
