We Choose Space
February 08, 2013 & February 15, 2013
Young Harris, approximately 30 minutes from Blue Ridge on Hwy 76, take main entrance straight back turn left at crossroad, planetarium will be on your left.
8 p.m. Adults $3.00, Children are $2.00. Tickets are available 30 minutes prior to start of show. This all-new presentation is the first planetarium show told completely by astronauts (Scott Parazynski, Tom Jones and Gene Cernan) and a famous space reporter (Walter Cronkite). It is the first show to use actual fisheye photography from inside the International Space Station, and to tour the completed Station, which is larger than a five-bedroom house! Plus, it is the first show to animate the construction of a sustainable lunar colony and to feature potential commercial spacecraft of the present and future. Fifty years ago, President John F. Kennedy chose the moon as our destination on the new frontier of space. In the same spirit, this show once again chooses space, not because it is easy, but because it is hard—and because meeting its challenges is our destiny.
