On the occasion of the 25th anniversary of the Hubble Space Telescope, the Eugenides Planetarium digital show “Hubble’s Universe” highlights Hubble’s immense contribution in our continuing efforts to decipher the secrets of the Universe. From the life and death of the stars to the most distant galactic clusters and superclusters, its keen vision penetrated to the far reaches of space and time, allowing us to expand tremendously our knowledge of the Cosmos. Indeed, the eyes of Hubble are the eyes of humankind: eons of dreams, decades of planning and a global scientific and technological effort enable these dreams to become a reality.

The New Digital Planetarium’s production “Messenger from the Universe” invites you on a fascinating journey of discovery about light. Visible light is only a tiny part of the electromagnetic radiation emitted by celestial objects. When, however, we started building telescopes that could “see” in other wavelengths as well, our knowledge of the Universe expanded tremendously. From the great observatories in the Chilean desert of Atacama to the Hubble space telescope, and from the exploration of the Solar system to our communication satellites, this show highlights the importance of light in astronomy research, as well as how Space exploration and scientific research in general benefit society at large.

  Journey to the Stars

                                         Planetarium Show
                                            Duration: 40´



Gazing at the stars in our night sky we may be tempted to think that stars live forever and that their lives are peaceful and quiet. We couldn’t be more wrong! Because, if we journey to the stars in our Galaxy, we will not discover so much a serene and unaltered world, but rather the often violent natural processes of a perpetual genesis and destruction. Indeed, thanks to our scientific theories, which are safely grounded on astronomical observation, thanks to the penetrating gaze of our terrestrial and space telescopes, the Milky Way and its innumerable amazing and strange natural objects are revealed in all their glory.

The Christmas Star





  Digital Show
Duration: 40´

 Looking back over the centuries since the birth of Christ in the humble manger in Bethlehem, one cannot help but feel an immense admiration for the deep and defining effect that his birth had on the world. This birth was made known to the poor shepherds by a "multitude of heavenly bodies" and to the people of Israel by the arrival of the three Kings from the East. Guided by the light of the "star from the East," they crossed deserts and mountains to worship this "unknown child." But what was that light that led them away from their homeland? What kind of star was it that guided them to the place where the Child of Bethlehem lay swaddled? What was that mysterious and wondrous star whose radiant light has illuminated and inspired humanity for more than 2000 years?
