Description

Family Night at the Framingham State University Planetarium presents:

Undiscovered Worlds

Humans have long imagined alien worlds beyond our solar system. However, in recent years, science fiction has become science reality. Join us for a presentation of Undiscovered Worlds, a fulldome film produced by the Charles Hayden Planetarium at Boston's Museum of Science. Undiscovered Worlds reveals the ingenious methods used by astronomers to identify planets orbiting stars beyond the Sun, culminating in the historic Kepler mission, which has detected thousands of these "exoplanets" over the last few years. After the film, planetarium educator Mary MacDonald will bring you the latest news about Kepler's successor: the Transiting Exoplanet Survey Satellite (TESS). TESS, launched in April 2018, is sure to reveal thousands of additional worlds, further changing the way we view our place among the stars.

Fulldome Film: yes • Live Planetarium Content: yes • Guest Speaker: no

ABOUT OUR SHOWS

Monthly public programs at FSU’s digital planetarium are about one hour in length and may include some combination of: a fulldome feature film, a short talk presented by a guest speaker, and/or a live planetarium segment. A live planetarium segment may include a tour of the seasonal night sky and/or other multimedia elements presented with live narration.

Family Night at the FSU Planetarium is a series of events designed to give families with children ages 6 and up an opportunity to discover the marvelous diversity of our universe, together.

To ensure visitor safety and quality of presentation, planetarium doors will remain closed once the show has begun. Late arrivals will not be admitted.
