Learning about science in a museum is safer than experiencing it firsthand by accidentally ingesting a science textbook. Embrace science with today's Groupon for one-year memberships to Fleischmann Planetarium and Science Center at the University of Nevada, Reno. All memberships include access to scheduled planetarium shows, a 10% discount at The Science Store, and priority registration for planetarium programs. Choose from the following options:
- For $50, you get a one-year family membership for up to six people (a $100 value).
- For $25, you get a one-year two-person membership (a $50 value).
- For $12, you get a one-year individual membership (a $35 value).
A one-year membership to Fleischmann Planetarium and Science Center nets stargazing eyes countless chances to soak up the galaxy-spanning images created by the planetarium's high-definition 3-D projector and peruse the museum's exhibits. Permanent spectacles include the half-ton Quinn Canyon Meteorite, watercolor portraits of outer space, and a Foucault pendulum, which a French physicist created to prove that the universe revolved around him. Members can freely view digital star shows—including a recent exploration of black holes—and guided tours of the night sky led by guest astronomers.
Noncelestial presentations include Wild Ocean, which follows the ocean food chain up from the smallest plankton to the largest carnivorous glaciers, and a surround-sound light show set to Pink Floyd's Dark Side of the Moon. Members also receive a personalized member card, invitations to special events and lectures, and email updates on astronomical news such as upcoming meteor showers or satellite rains.
