Asteroid: Mission Extreme


This fulldome planetarium show about asteroids explores how they can tell us more about the origins of our solar system, how they could provide stepping-stones for human space exploration, and how they can pose a potential danger to life on Earth. There is so much to learn about asteroids in this visually stunning fulldome planetarium show from National Geographic. If you want to see asteroids as if you just landed on one, this is the show for you! Plus, each screening will include a “Live” planetarium show about the NASA’s OSIRIS-REX mission to return a sample from an asteroid! The University of Arizona is leading the first NASA mission that will fly to an asteroid and return to Earth with a pristine sample.

We Are Stars


A fun, gorgeously animated fulldome show about cosmic chemistry and our explosive origins, this dazzling film reveals how hydrogen and carbon, the very building blocks of life, formed in the universe and then brings it all back to us – we are made of stars!

Mysteries of the Unseen World


Visually stunning and rooted in cutting-edge research, Mysteries of the Unseen World will leave audiences in thrall as they begin to understand the enormity of the world they can’t see—a world that exists all around us at speeds or scales that we can’t detect. And with this understanding comes a new appreciation of the wonder and possibilities of science.

Tucson Sky and Beyond

tucson sky and beyond
This is our "classic" night sky show, but not like you remember it! Take a relaxing look at the night sky as one of our skilled "Console Captains" gives you a guided tour of the stars, planets, constellations and current events happening in the night sky. This live show is never the same and there is always a surprise in store.

Touring the Solar System

Touring the Solar System
Zoom away from planet Earth and take a guided tour through the Solar System! In this show we stop by each of the planets and learn why they are unique.  We’ll even explore moons, asteroids, the Milky Way and beyond. With one of our talented planetarium operators steering the spaceship, this is a fun, fascinating ride.
