Life in the Universe 3D

*Please note due to a fire on our roof on 9 April, we're closed for a few weeks, including the whole of the Easter holidays. We'll be back very soon*


Is there anybody out there? 

Join us in the search for extra-terrestrial life in our most advanced 3D Planetarium show yet.

Fly to distant worlds, learn how astronomers search for planets, and debate whether humans are ready to meet aliens. How the show ends depends on what you decide! 

Shows last 30 minutes.
