Fulldome Festival to feature two new shows

Morrill Hall

Mueller Planetarium at Morrill Hall, 645 N. 14th St., will host a special day of five different fulldome shows May 27.

Visitors can preview two new fulldome shows. "Sunstruck" explores the science of the sun, and "Cosmic Origins Spectograph" is a dynamic display of the COS instrument installed on the Hubble Space Telescope in 2009. Both shows provide an immersive, high-tech adventure on the 360-degree overhead domed screen.

May 27 showtimes:

  • 11 a.m.: "Rusty Rocket's Last Blast"

  • Noon: "Dream to Fly"

  • 1 p.m.: "Sunstruck"

  • 2 p.m.: "Cosmic Origins Spectrograph"

  • 3 p.m.: "Natural Selection"

"This is a wonderful opportunity to showcase a variety of our fulldome features," said Mueller Planetarium coordinator Zach Thompson. "Visitors can make a day out of the Fulldome Festival. There is something for everyone."
