JOURNEY TO THE CENTRE OF THE MILKY WAY
Suitable for school years 7+ / Families / Adults
Film length: 7 mins
What lies at the heart of our galaxy?
Embark on a journey to the centre of the Milky Way and in seven minutes travel faster than light, from the driest place on Earth (the Atacama Desert in Chile) right to the centre of our own galaxy, where a black hole is consuming everything that strays into its path.
84 million stars will appear in front of your eyes, each hiding mysteries waiting to be solved. Are there planets around them, perhaps with moons? Do they have water? Could they harbour life?
Our school Planetarium show also includes a guided ‘What’s in the sky tonight’ presentation and a Solar System walk through covering relevant aspects of the NSW curriculum.
