Sun's Orbit Around Milky Way

Want to take a stroll on Mars? Visit the moons of Jupiter? In this unique program, you will learn to navigate our solar system, galaxy, and beyond, using the Museum’s cutting-edge planetarium software, Digital Universe, which combines three-dimensional celestial maps with breathtaking data visualization. Using advanced gaming hardware and the Rose Center’s Hayden Planetarium, students will have the incredible opportunity to develop their own planetarium show and teach others the science behind it, at a special presentation on Friday evening from 5–7 pm.

The Digital Flight School is supported by the John Ben Snow Memorial Trust.
