The planetarium’s weekend lineup includes the stop-motion animated Dinosaur Passage to Pangea and a film about the Orion constellation featuring laser-light versions of Zeus, Apollo, and Poseidon. Matinees included the Liam Neeson-narrated Black Holes: The Other Side of Infinity, which animates the universe’s formation and the collisions of galaxies.

Mayborn Science Theater

Plummeting into a hurricane’s eye. Tunneling through San Andreas’s interior. Zipping in and out of colliding galaxies. At Mayborn Science Theater, these sorts of adventures are par for the course. Here, wonders of the natural world beam onto a 60-foot digital screen that wraps around an entire 180-seat theater, creating immersive educational experiences. Screened during weekends and weekday matinees, science-minded shows focus on diverse, family-friendly topics such as stars and tropical reefs. Its laser light shows, on the other hand, eschew education for spectacle, dazzling audiences with 3D graphics and 15,000 watts of digital sound.

Outside the dome, Mayborn continues educating visitors at its gallery. Amidst rotating displays on subjects such as rocks and minerals, the Exhibit Space showcases Hubble photographs and shares updates from the Mars rover. The exhibit’s recent acquisitions even include tiles from actual space shuttles, as well as tiles from actual Mahjong games played by astronauts sitting in NASA waiting rooms.
