Welcome To The Universe

Get a clear picture of your place in the Universe with the Adler Planetarium's sky show, 'Welcome to the Universe.'

What You Will Discover

Included With All Access Pass

The Universe is vast and largely mysterious, but it’s also our home. Earth—and everyone who lives on it—is part of a huge network of exploding stars, swirling galaxies, orbiting planets, black holes, and strange features scientists are still trying to decipher.

In Welcome to the Universe, you’ll get a clear picture of your place in this jaw-dropping cosmic landscape. With the guidance of a live presenter, you’ll explore the Pleiades star cluster, sail past the Andromeda galaxy, navigate the galaxies of the Coma Cluster, and discover hidden wonders of the Universe.

Welcome to the Universe is an HD flat screen experience.

Run Time: approx. 30 minutes
