Planetarium Public Show: Distant Worlds

Event Date: 
Saturday, November 30, 2019 - 6:30pm
Location: 
UNT Sky Theater

Distant Worlds -- Alien Life? is a beautiful planetarium film exploring one of the most enduring questions of humankind -- are we alone? For millennia our ancestors watched the stars, questioning the origin and nature of what they saw. Still today we ask these questions, knowing that the Universe is a vast place filled with billions and billions of stars and planets -- but yet, Earth is the only planet we know for sure to be inhabited.

"Distant Worlds - Alien Life?", originally "Ferne Welten - fremdes Leben?", is a joint production by the planetariums in Münster, Bochum, Kiel, Mannheim, Osnabrück und Wolfsburg, produced at LWL-Planetarium Münster. It was produced by a consortium of German planetariums, and was directed by Björn Voß from Münster Planetarium.

Note: Since this show is 53 minutes long, there may not be time for the sky tonight or star talk portion of the show. Also, there are a few times in this show where text is shown which is in German.
