New at Planetarium: ‘From Earth to the Universe’

Premieres Friday, March 3

The Vanderbilt Reichert Planetarium will premiere a spectacular new, full-dome show – From Earth to the Universe – beginning on Friday, March 3, at 9:00 p.m. Regular showings will be at 2:00 p.m. on Tuesday, Saturday and Sunday, and at 9:00 p.m. on Friday and Saturday.

The nebula Messier 78
The nebula Messier 78 is a reflection nebula in the constellation Orion, discovered by Pierre Méchain in 1780 and included that year by Charles Messier in his catalog of comet-like objects. (A nebula is a cloud of interstellar gas and dust visible in the night sky.)

This stunning, 30-minute voyage through time and space presents the Universe revealed to us by science, through an arresting combination of imagery and sound. Before the show, an astronomy educator gives a live, 15-minute star talk.

Dave Bush, technical and production coordinator for the Planetarium, said, “From Earth to the Universe is a wonderfully produced planetarium show that has a little something for everybody. Viewers learn about the fascinating history of astronomy, discover what it’s like to be inside a large observatory with giant telescopes, and travel to the edge of the known cosmos. With beautiful space imagery and music, this program will absolutely captivate audiences.”

That imagery – including video shot from the International Space Station – will be enhanced by the Planetarium’s advanced Konica Minolta GeminiStarIII Projection system with full-dome video and surround-sound.

From Earth to the Universe was produced for the ESO Supernova Planetarium and Visitor Centre in Munich, Germany. ESO is the European Southern Observatory, a 16-nation intergovernmental research organization for ground-based astronomy.
