Students will experience the stars in this thrilling planetarium show as they discover how we search for signs of alien life in space. Students will also get hands-on in an astronaut challenge activity.

Students will discover how our existing understanding of life on earth guides the hunt for alien life elsewhere in the Universe. By exploring the unlikely places in which we find life on our own planet, (such as the deep ocean floor or in the Antarctic), scientists can provide clues for finding life in other unexpected places like Mars, Jupiter’s moon’s or other exo-planets like our own.

Students will also have the opportunity to handle objects such as a Sokol flying suit and helmet.
