See the light this Spring Break at the Space Centre

There’s more to light than meets your eye! Visit the H.R. MacMillan Space Centre this Spring Break and find out how astronomers use visible light from the Sun, infrared heat waves and x-rays to understand some of the mysteries of our universe.

Take part in special interactive activities focused on the theme of “light”, and check out our new “Seeing! A photon’s journey across space, time and mind” show in the Planetarium Star Theatre, and a new live demonstration called “Invisible Light” in the GroundStation Canada Theatre.

In the planetarium show, you’ll follow the journey of a single photon as it travels from a distant star across the vast expanse of space to land on someone’s retina. Explore the astrophysical processes of the cosmos, and the biology of the eye and brain.
