Event description

Description

Cosmic Origins Spectrograph is a fulldome look at the Cosmic Origins Spectrograph instrument installed on the Hubble Space Telescope in 2009 during Servicing Mission 4, as well as the science behind its utility. The show covers the basics of spectroscopy at a high level, and touches on the processing of galactic and extragalactic gas. Other topics include the use of quasars as background light sources, cosmic evolution, and the development of large scale structure. (Excerpt by Loch Ness Productions; for a preview visit https://youtu.be/4qq53zgdqk0)

This program will also include Seasonal Star Gazing, a brief overview of the autumn sky, and Passport to the Universe, a journey from our Solar System to the Virgo Supercluster and back again during which you’ll get an astronaut’s-eye view of the incredible objects that constitute our Universe and an inspiring reminder of the limitlessness of human imagination and ingenuity. (Excerpt by California Academy of Sciences; for a preview to Passport, visit https://youtu.be/K6ZkhLPhl6k.
