The Universe OverheadPlanetarium Director, Dr. Ron Kaitchuck, will review and explain some of the most exciting and surprising astronomical discoveries in this live presentation. These include findings from space probes at Jupiter and Saturn, the first images of the surface of the giant star Antares, and a star in another galaxy that disappeared from view – possibly becoming a black hole. New discoveries include planets with bizarre characteristics orbiting other stars. Also, scientists accomplished what Einstein thought to be impossible; they detected gravitational waves, a distortion of space and time as predicted by the General Theory of Relativity. Astronomers believe these gravitational waves were produced by the merger of large black holes in very distant galaxies. Come and learn about all these things and more during this presentation in the planetarium.
