“The Search: Exploring Unknown Worlds” in 3-D at Marston Exploration Theater

Dates vary.

"The Search: Exploring Unknown Worlds" in 3-D in Marston Exploration Theater explores how the discoveries and current research of exoplanets (worlds beyond our Solar System) will change how we view our planet. With rapidly improving technology, the discovery of exoplanets represents one step closer to the possibility of finding an Earth-like world out side our Solar System. Show lasts approximately 60 minutes.
