Join us to prepare for the launch of NASA’s next “Great Observatory”!
Special guest speaker, Dr. Carter Emmart, Director of Astro-Visualization at Hayden Planetarium AMNH will remotely “pilot” our planetarium to show the launch and deployment of JWST in stunning detail.
Build a paper model of the telescope and see how NASA uses “origami” principals to make large spacecraft fold up into small packages for launch.
Watch a special planetarium program exploring how JWST was designed, built and tested – the engineering process – behind this space telescope. A great Saturday family activity!
Tickets are $8 a person. Tickets may be purchased in advance online, by phone at (207) 581-1341, or at the ticket box office prior to the show.
