Astronomy Live: Grand Tour of the Universe
July 28, 2015
Where are we among the stars in the Milky Way? Do we hold a special place in the universe? The Grand Tour will answer these questions while you travel from Earth to the most distant objects in the universe. Explore planets, nearby stars, and the myriad galaxies that populate the universe while we fly through the 3D Digital Universe Atlas. Join Brian Abbott to experience the entire observable universe and come to a cosmic understanding of where we are and how we came to be.
Support for Hayden Planetarium Programs is provided by the Horace W. Goldsmith Endowment Fund.
