The Life of Stars

The Life of Stars

The night sky may look peaceful and unchanging, but the stars that you see are the powerhouses of the Universe - blazing, gargantuan fireballs with fascinating life-and-death stories full of creativity and destruction.

Learn how stars are born and how their lives, can even more dramtically, end. 

Immediately following is the full-dome film BIG, which takes you on a journey from the Earth to the most distant objects in our Universe.
