Dawn of the Space Age

Feb 2
7:30 PM - 8:30 PM
Strickler Planetarium, ONU Campus

This month the fastest route to space is via the campus of Olivet Nazarene University, as Strickler Planetarium presents The Dawn of the Space Age. Celebrate the history and adventure of human space exploration with this full-dome presentation that traces humanity's endeavors in space from the first Russian cosmonauts to the International Space Station and beyond! Don't simply learn about history... experience it, from the lunar surface to the launch of the space shuttle. Dawn of the Space Age is suitable for explorers of all ages and will be presented at the planetarium Saturday, February 2 and 16, at 6, 7:30 and 9 p.m. Presentations also include a live sky-tour of the winter skies and a virtual ride on a thrilling space coaster. Tickets are available at the door fifteen minutes prior to shows.
