Solar System

"EIGHT PLANETS AND COUNTING" OMNI DOME SHOW!

We're offering an updated version of the "Eight Planets and Counting" program!     Humanity's knowledge of the solar system has changed dramatically within the last few years.    As we know the International Astronomical Union has demoted Pluto, but astronomers have also found an array of other bodies, called "Trans-Neptunian Objects."  

The omni-dome "Eight Planets and Counting" program guides you through the solar system: from our parent star, the Sun, out to the realm beyond Neptune.   Along the way, we'll visit each of the eight planets in turn, we'll explore the Moon, and we'll fly through the asteroid belt. 

Join us for this fantastic full dome odyssey through the solar system!

About the film:
"In what becomes a discourse on American life, these overeducated parking 
attendants wax profoundly about car culture and capitalism, seek vengeance 
against entitled patrons and thieves, and make fun of drunken jerks. If the intersection between the status quo and the quest for freedom is their ultimate challenge, could a slab of asphalt be an emotional way station for 

The American Dream?"

Assassins castPerformed as a revue in one act, ASSASSINS offers up nine sharply drawn sketches of people who killed presidents of the United States – or gave it their best shot. The winner of multiple TONY Awards, Sondheim’s glimmering and flavorful score gives a nod to the all-American sounds of Foster, Sousa, and Copland. It remains provocative, innovative, riveting, and timely as ever in this election year. Directed by USM’s Ed Reichert. Music & Lyrics by Stephen Sondheim; Book by John Weidman.

For event details and ticket reservations visit the Music Box Office or call 780-5555. Tickets cost $15 general admission, $10 seniors and USM faculty/staff, $5 students. TTY: 780-5646. Parking on campus is free for evening and weekend events.

IBEX: The Search for the Edge of the Solar System

An omni-dome (full dome) presentation about the IBEX (Interstellar Boundary Explorer) probe.      Launched in 2008, the IBEX craft collects energized neutral particles emitted from the heliosphere: the "bubble" enclosing the solar system.   These collections enable the IBEX probe to construct an image of the membrane surrounding us.  The same membrane that protects the solar system from harmful galactic particles.

How does the IBEX probe work?    How does it communicate with Earth?

Join us for this fascinating full-dome show about the IBEX probe and its bold mission to explore the solar system's final frontier. 

Show duration:  31 minutes

(Note: show presentation includes a night sky tour, so the entire program is approximately 45 minutes.)

The InterSteller Boundary Explorer collects ENAs (Energized Neutral Particles) emitted from the heliosphere, the "bubble" enclosing the solar system. By collecting theses particles, the IBEX probe constructs an image of this heliosphere. Explore the outer solar system with IBEX!
