Planetarium Series: "Extreme Planets"

Event: Planetarium: “Extreme Planets”
Date: January 27, 2012 at 7:00pm
Location: Farrington Building Room 102

The Physics Department will be kicking off the planetarium series program on January 27th with “Extreme Planets.” This program will demonstrate the tools and techniques astronomers use to discover planets orbiting around other stars, and it will also examine the possible environments on some of these planets.

The SHSU Planetarium contains the Mediaglobe I projector, which allows visitors to take a virtual journey through space. It also allows its guest to see the night sky as it would appear to someone in any part of the world, how it appeared in the past, and how it will look in the future. The best part about this is that it is FREE and open to the public. You don’t have to be a SHSU student to appreciate the beauty and wonders of the deep space!
