Dome Show Movie – TWO SMALL PIECES OF GLASS: THE AMAZING TELESCOPE
January 20, 2019 @ 3:00 pm - 3:30 pm
An event every week that begins at 3:00 pm on Sunday, repeating until January 27, 2019
Produced to engage and appeal to audiences of all ages, Two Small Pieces of Glass traces the history of the telescope from Galileo’s modifications to a child’s spyglass—using two small pieces of glass—to the launch of NASA’s Hubble Space Telescope and the future of astronomy. It explores the wonder and discovery made by astronomers throughout the last 400 years.
While looking through the astronomer’s telescope, the students, along with the planetarium audience, explore the Galilean Moons, Saturn’s rings, and spiral structure of galaxies. During their conversation with the astronomer, they also learn about the discoveries of Galileo, Huygens, Newton, Hubble and many others.
