The Hot and Energetic Universe - Free Public Planetarium Show

The Hot and Energetic Universe

Using immersive visualizations and real images, “The Hot and Energetic Universe” presents the achievements of the modern astronomy, the most advanced terrestrial and orbital observatories, the basic principles of electromagnetic radiation and the natural phenomena related to high-energy astrophysics. This science probes hot gas in clusters of galaxies where hot gas is accreting around supermassive black holes in the centers of galaxies, neutron stars, supernova remnants and stars like our sun, emitting copious amounts of high-energy radiation. These are the most massive objects in the universe.


Admission is free but we request that you reserve a seat to ensure we do not overbook. Reservations are made available the week before the show. You can reserve your seat on the Planetarium webpage:
