Event details

Sending satellites into space can allow us to explore the cosmos, enabling discoveries and a new understanding of the Universe. But not all satellites look out towards the vast cosmos – some look down on Earth and, in doing so, give us detailed images of the surface of our planet.

These images and information from the sensors allow us to see changes over time, such as the effects that humans have on our world, and even allow us to monitor colonies of animals in inhospitable and remote parts of the world.

See the world differently. See our planet from space.

All images credited to NASA.
Please note that during term time before 2pm the planetarium can be busy with school visits. To avoid disappointment, please call us on the day of your visit.
 
The planetarium is equipped with an analogue induction loop and has spaces for wheelchairs.
 
During busy times, we request that you visit the planetarium, Science Theatre and Motion Ride once - this is to allow other visitors to enjoy the experience too. Thanks for your consideration.
