NI Science Festival: A Celestial Journey

Sun 25 Feb
11:00am to 5:00pm

SHOWS: 11.00am, 1.00pm, 3.00pm & 4:30pm 

The International Space Station is mankind’s outpost in space and stepping stone to other worlds.
We begin our celestial journey by visiting the Space Station to observe how astronauts live, and work, on-board this incredible man-made facility which is whizzing around Planet Earth.
We will then be transported back in time to see the beginning of the Solar System and witness our star, The Sun, burst into life. Along the way we will investigate what exists at the very edges of the Solar System and how we as a species are exploring our place in space.
As part of our Solar System voyage we will see how our knowledge of Planet Mars has rapidly increased, and take a flight over the surface of the Red Planet using our latest knowledge and images as a guide for discovery.
