CAPCOM GO! The Apollo Story
What did it take to get humans to the surface of the Moon? What challenges did the engineers, scientists, and astronauts who worked to achieve that goal face?

Experience the Aurora
Over seven months in the Arctic Circle, our crews captured timelapse images of the Aurora Borealis with high resolution digital SLR cameras outfitted with fisheye lenses. The results are spectacular. For the first time the aurora has been captured as it was meant to be experienced, as a display that covers the entire sky. This immersive show shares the science behind the aurora and tells the story of our quest to find and photograph the aurora for wraparound display in full-dome theaters.

Ferret Feeding Frenzy
Visit with the museum’s very own live black-footed ferrets – who knows, you might become BFFs with our BFFs! Join us every Saturday & Sunday in Natural Areas Exhibit Zone at 2:30pm to watch as our furry friends tear into their weekend meal. Not for the squeamish or faint of heart… you’ve been warned!
A physicist and a beekeeper meet at a party. They hit it off and go for a drink. Or perhaps they don’t. Perhaps she is engaged to someone else, perhaps he is. Maybe she breaks his heart, maybe he breaks hers. Even in quantum parallel universes, in which every possibility exists, love stings like a bee. Time, it turns out, is a more effective breaker of hearts than human beings. Written in the stars, Constellations is an immersive multi-media theatrical performance presented in the OtterBox Digital Dome Theater in collaboration with OpenStage Theater.
