Like the Galileo and Voyager spacecrafts before it, the Cassini Spacecraft is one of the most sophisticated tools made by human hands. Cassini has allowed us to explore worlds no one has ever set foot upon, specifically those in the realm of the great ringed giant Saturn. Cassini has uncovered mysteries about the mammoth planet's ring structure, sent down a probe to explore the only moon known to have an atmosphere, and even discovered water geysers on an unsuspecting moon thus hinting at a potential presence of simple life. We would not have anything like the understanding of our solar system that we do now were it not for Cassini. Sadly, the spacecraft is in its final months and is due to crash intentionally into Saturn on September 15th. Join us in the Planetarium to learn some history about the discoveries made by the spacecraft's namesake, but more importantly, learn all about and celebrate the many discoveries this spacecraft has afforded our species -- and finally bid it a fond farewell.
Showtimes: Fridays 7:00pm, Saturdays 4:00pm, and Saturdays 7:00pm. Note we no longer offer Sunday shows.
