Saturday kids' show: "We Choose Space"

Saturday Nov 2
10:30 AM - 11:30 AM

A planetarium show for audiences of all ages who dream of space and wonder about human spaceflight after the Shuttle! It's a show filled with real adventures for the near frontier. Positive, possible, and exciting -- this is a promise we can make to our children, our future astronauts.

It has been created by the Houston Museum of Natural Science, Home Run Pictures, and Tietronix with scientific oversight by Rice University. Astronauts Scott Parazinsky, Tom Jones and Gene Cernan, and veteran space reporter Walter Cronkite are your tour guides on this adventure to the completed International Space Station and to the past and future moon. Include fulldome imagery using OUR fisheye lens on the ISS!
