Wayfinders: Waves, Winds, and Stars — NEW! @ Ingram Planetarium

Explore traditional Polynesian navigation done without the aid of modern navigational instruments, also called wayfinding. Learn how to read the stars and interpret the winds and waves to navigate without modern instruments. This live-action film tells the story of the Polynesian Voyaging Society and the recovery of the nearly lost art and science of traditional, non-instrument navigation in Hawai’i and the Pacific. This program includes a live star show.

Astronaut @ Ingram Planetarium
Jul 4 @ 1:00 pm – 2:00 pm

This movie delves into what it takes to become an astronaut. How does a rocket launch or floating around the space station affect the human body? Discover the perils that lurk in space as ‘Chad’, our test astronaut, is subjected to everything that space has to throw at him. This program includes a live star show.

Planet Nine @ Ingram Planetarium
Jul 4 @ 2:00 pm – 3:00 pm

In 2015, the New Horizons spacecraft gave us our first close look at Pluto, the most famous dwarf planet in the outskirts of our Solar System. But what lies beyond Pluto? Using nothing but their wits (and high-powered telescopes and a thorough understanding of orbital mechanics), astronomers are making new discoveries about how our Solar System formed and what it may be hiding. Follow Mike Brown and his team at CalTech as they uncover dwarf worlds like the remarkably bright Eris; Haumea, an egg-shaped object rotating incredibly fast; and Sedna, whose orbit takes it deep into the far reaches of the Solar System. Is there a new planet beyond these distant objects? We’ll tag along on Mike Brown’s first night searching for the ninth planet at the Subaru Telescope in Hawaii. Planet Nine collaborators Mark SubbaRao, Patrick McPike, and Mike Brown are the 2017 Vizzie award winners for People’s Choice from the National Science Foundation!

This program includes a live star show.

 

Seeing: A Photon’s Journey Across Space – NEW! @ Ingram Planetarium
