September 23, 2016 at UAA Planetarium in Anchorage, AK.
Humans have long imagined exotic and intriguing worlds beyond our solar system. However, in recent years, science fiction has become science fact. With the creation of better telescopes and the improvement of detection techniques, we have discovered that our Sun is not the only star with orbiting planets. Since the discovery of the first exoplanet in 1995, astronomers have discovered hundreds more orbiting other stars in our galaxy and beyond.
“Undiscovered Worlds” is one hour long consisting of a fulldome film and live presentation by a UAA astronomer. Ticket reservations are available online only at http://UAATix.com. Remaining tickets will be sold on a first-come, first-served basis at the door on the day of the show. The planetarium will open for seating 30 minutes before the start of each show. You must be in the theater 10 minutes before the show starts. Reserved seats will be released after this time to stand-by customers. There is no entry after the show begins.
