  • Summer 2014: The Home Galaxy
    Debuts June 27

    It’s been called a river in the sky, a Tree of Life, a celestial spine, and even a spray of mother's milk. Since Galileo made the telescopic discovery of countless hosts of stars and mysterious, dark, brooding clouds, we have come to know the Milky Way as our galactic home among the cosmos. Come and explore Via Lactea, from its sprawling spiral arms to the ultimate heart of darkness, the supermassive black hole that resides at its center. 
  • Fall 2014: When Things Collide
    Debuts September 26, 2014

    Movies, mythology, and popular culture paint many pictures of the ways that our world might end. How does science shed light on world-ending planetary disruptions past and future? We'll fly to celestial sites of devastation and disaster, exploring how these events shape our Universe, and could even threaten life on Earth.
