Aboard the SSE-4801

Live multimedia show presented at Planétarium Rio Tinto Alcan

Why is the sky blue? Where do stars hide during the day? Are there only stars and the Moon in the sky? To find out, hop on board SSE-4801 to discover what hides in the outer reaches of our celestial neighbourhood: the Solar System. Guided by our spirited host, you'll soar in orbit for an incredible journey, somewhere between the Sun and Neptune; exploring the eight planets, new moons, and an asteroid field. You'll also meet a cute and mysterious little comet. Ready for take-off? Let the adventure begin!
