Out There - The Quest for Extrasolar Worlds
Out There — The Quest for Extrasolar Worlds tells the story of how human curiosity has driven us to look outwards for millennia, to discover and explore new and distant worlds and to find the unfamiliar and extraordinary forms of life that could exist in the mysterious realms of the Universe.
The Glastonbury Planetarium is proud to premiere this production by The Swiss Museum of Transport Planetarium, directed and produced by Marc Horat, in cooperation with National Centre of Competence in Research PlanetS and ESO. The show lasts 30 minutes and is suitable for family audiences. Before the show, we'll tour the summer skies.
Out There — The Quest for Extrasolar Worlds will transport viewers from this world to entirely new and foreign ones. The show features the primitive science fiction of early civilisations, to the future space missions that will observe the Universe in greater-than-ever detail and travel to the surfaces and oceans of moons in our Solar System.
You can also purchase your tickets at the door via a credit card. We are not able to handle cash transactions. Doors open 30 minutes before the show. Seating is on a first-come basis. No late arrivals! We cannot admit guests after show has started. Please arrive on time.
Our planetariums shows are open to all ages but here are some things to consider. Matinee shows are usually geared for kids 7 and under. Evening shows are generally geared for ages 8 and up, lasting anywhere from 60 - 90 minutes. Weather and time permitting we will include telescope viewing. Dress appropriately for the weather. The Cosmic Concert Music Series shows are definitely best suited for young adults and adults. All guests should be comfortable with sitting in the dark for an extended period of time. We want everyone to have a great time and be inspired by the awesomeness of the universe.
