The mission of the Safe Zone Project at the University of Southern Maine is to visibly identify and support those members of the University community who are safe and supportive contacts for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, questioning and queer students, staff and faculty.

Safe Zone Project volunteers participate in a 1.5 to 2 hour orientation program that introduces them to the various aspects of the lives and experiences of LGBTQ individuals and community. The program focuses on the issues that LGBTQ people face and how we (both LGBTQ and allied) can be successful, safe and supportive allies. Once a volunteer has gone through the orientation program, they can display the Safe Zone symbol on their office door, desk space or person.

Programs can be scheduled for your group, staff or population by contacting the Center for Sexualities and Gender Diversity at (207) 780-5767 or sholmes@usm.maine.edu

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.)

For more information about this probe, visit http://ibex.swri.edu/

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!
