CPS Planetarium April public shows (posted 4/3/17)

Ever wondered about the training astronauts have to go through to get into space? Or how astronomers can tell a galaxy is millions of light years away from us? Come to CPS Planetarium this Saturday to answer these and many other questions about space during our monthly free planetarium shows.
On Saturday, April 8, the 2:00 p.m. show will be Astronaut, where visitors will learn how space travel affects the human body and how astronauts train and prepare for their missions.
The 3:15 p.m. show will be 3000 Years of Stargazing. From Stonehenge and Machu Picchu to the Hubble Space Telescope, this show explains how, step by step, the study of astronomy has allowed us to better understand the universe we live in.
