Come explore space with Dr. Melodi Rodrigue, an astrophysicist who used the Hubble Space Telescope, and Tony Berendsen, the Star Guide who founded Tahoe Star Tours!
Learn how the women of the Harvard College Observatory helped chart the heavens in a LIVE presentation with Melodi and Tony. (Includes a review of The Glass Universe by NY Times Bestselling Author Dava Sobel.)
Then enter our digital dome to discover how telescopes empower us to reach for the stars — from Galileo to space telescopes of the future.
Next experience hands-on activities, solar telescopes, and space poetry, and come away with souvenirs for your own personal space museum.
Finally, fly with us in the Starship Horizon to survey the wonders of the universe. Experience science, imagination and adventure — firsthand!
