Molecularium: Riding SnowflakesMolecularium is a magical musical adventure in a world of atoms and molecules. Aboard the Molecularium, audiences join a cast of atomic characters on an immersive and unforgettable adventure into the nanoscale universe. Explore billions and trillions of atoms and molecules with Oxy, a precocious oxygen atom, and Hydro and Hydra, her wacky hydrogen pals. Ride from the atomic structure of a snowflake to the far reaches of space aboard the Molecularium, the most fantastic ship in the Universe.

Astronomyths – Scripted and produced in Greece, Astronomyths offers a view of the stars and some of the constellations from Earth, telling the stories from which they were named. A full dome digital production, Astronomyths draws you into the past through ancient Greek mythology, and rockets into the future with exploration of recent deep space object discoveries. See different star types, galaxies, nebulae, and more as you peer into some of the furthest reaches humans have seen. An insightful, fun, and highly educational show, Astronomyths is suitable for friends and family of all ages.

Earth, Moon and Sun – This planetarium show explores the relationship between the Earth, Moon and Sun with the help of Coyote, an amusing character adapted from Native American oral traditions who has many misconceptions about our home planet and its most familiar neighbors. His confusion about the universe makes viewers think about how the Earth, Moon and Sun work together as a system. Native American stories are used throughout the show to help distinguish between myths and science.

Black Holes: the Other Side of Infinity – Narrated by Academy-Award nominated actor Liam Neeson, this cutting-edge production features high-resolution visualizations of cosmic phenomena, working with data generated by computer simulations, to bring the current science of black holes to the dome screen. Audiences will be dazzled with striking, immersive animations of the formation of the early universe, star birth and death, the collision of giant galaxies, and a simulated flight to a super-massive black hole lurking at the center of our own Milky Way Galaxy.

Oasis In Space – Embark on a startling and beautiful voyage through our universe and galaxy, and travel through our Solar System visiting all of our planets in search of water-a key ingredient for life on Earth.
