This program is cancelled. The Museum is temporarily closed to maintain health and safety, but please check back for updates about reopening, at which time our Central Reservations team will be happy to assist with refunds.

Saturn's largest moon, Titan, has rivers of methane that carve channels into an icy bedrock and flow into large hydrocarbon seas. Atmospheric chemist Sarah Hörst leads a talk across the Titan landscape of ice mountains and sand dune fields, both alien and reminiscent of Earth.

Please note: There is no late seating in the Hayden Planetarium Space Theater. Guests arriving after the program starts will not be permitted to enter the dome.

In 2020, the Museum is celebrating the legacy of Charles Hayden, whose vision made the Hayden Planetarium possible and brought the universe to New York City.
