Big Astronomy

Shows at 4:30 PM Wed./Thurs./Fri./Sat./Sun.
Showing now through September 9

When we think of big astronomy, we think of big telescopes. But it is people who enable discoveries! It takes a team of people with diverse backgrounds, talents and skills, working under unique sky conditions, to make a world-class observatory succeed. Discover Chile’s grand observatories and meet the people who push the limits of technology, and what we know about the universe, using world-class telescopes. Great for adults and kids ages 6 and older.
