Event Details

Did an Asteroid Really Kill the Dinosaurs?
Did a space rock six miles wide slam into the Earth millions of years ago and wipe out a majority of all living species at that time, including the dinosaurs? Explore this impact and other cosmic collisions, which are abundant across our solar system, in this dynamic new show. See the numerous craters on worlds like the Moon, Mars, and even distant Pluto. Examine the dinosaur disaster up close, supported by evidence including the discovery in Italy of a layer of iridium, an element that is extremely rare on Earth, but much more common in asteroids and meteorites.


Please note: Tickets are for one show at the date and time specified above. All seats are general admission with no assigned seat numbers. For best seat selection, it's a good idea to arrive 15-20 minutes before showtime. For the safety of our visitors and in order to prevent accidents, late entry is not allowed. Likewise, once a show has started, if you leave the planetarium for any reason, re-entry is not allowed due to safety regulations in the darkened environment.

When purchasing online tickets with a credit card, a small fee is added to the ticket price by the company that does the processing; in other words, not by the college or planetarium. One benefit of purchasing online is the convenience of having guaranteed tickets in case of a sold-out show. Another benefit is that you can bypass the ticket desk in the planetarium lobby on arrival, and proceed directly to the planetarium entrance for seating when the doors open.
