The award-winning Dynamic Earth explores the inner workings of Earth’s climate system. With visualizations based on satellite monitoring data and advanced supercomputer simulations, this cutting-edge production follows a trail of energy that flows from the Sun into the interlocking systems that shape our climate: the atmosphere, oceans, and the biosphere. Audiences will ride along on swirling ocean and wind currents, dive into the heart of a monster hurricane, come face-to-face with sharks and gigantic whales, and fly into roiling volcanoes.

Black Holes: The Other Side of Infinity
Audiences are dazzled with striking, immersive animations of the formation of the early universe, star birth and death, the collision of giant galaxies, and a simulated flight to a super-massive black hole lurking at the center of our own Milky Way Galaxy. Educator guides available from the Denver Museum of Nature & Science and NASA.

The size of the universe is vast. The numbers used to describe it are, well, astronomical. Using Immersavision technology, "BIG" explores the Universe and takes the audience on a tour of some of its most magnificent sights.
Skies Over Louisville: Seasonal Editions
What does the sky look like tonight? Where can I find the planets? When is the best time to see the International Space Station? "Skies over Louisville" is designed to help answer these questions and many more. The program features an in-depth tour of the night sky including stars, constellations, and planets. Each month we will explore one area of observational astronomy in detail and every session will give the audience a chance to ask questions about the current night sky. This program changes with the seasons and throughout the year, so be sure to comeback again and again. This program is suitable for all ages.
