 DINOSAURS AT DUSK!

more dinosaurs

 

A whirlwind time travel adventure back to the epoch of the dinosaurs!

 

We have to tell you that we've been waiting aeons to announce that we have a full dome, computer animated dinosaurs show! A larger than life extravaganza rife with roaring monsters from the ancient age: bounding, stomping, flying, hunting, and foraging frenetically above us.

 

Well, by heavens, now we can tell the world that the dinosaurs have arrived at the Southworth Planetarium! (Or, to get the verb tense right, they WILL arrive on September 6, 2013.)

 

Dinosaurs!

 

Propel yourself back through the epochs toexplore an Earth teeming with Pteradons, Triceratrops and, of course, the ferocious -and therefore wonderfully marketable- T-Rex!

 

Sir Richard Owen*

 

And, if we can say so, this is NOT your great great great grandfather's dinosaur show with slides and lethargic Sunday afternoon nature special narration. Instead, we're embarking on a causality violating adventure through time to discover a planet dominated by the largest land animals that ever set claw to topsoil.

 

Dinosaurs

 

This September, come back to the Southworth Planetarium and then venture back to the Mesozoic era for a personal odyssey through the realm of the dinosaurs.

 

Matinee and evening shows!

7:00 PM to 8:00 PM

 DINOSAURS AT DUSK!

more dinosaurs

 

A whirlwind time travel adventure back to the epoch of the dinosaurs!

 

We have to tell you that we've been waiting aeons to announce that we have a full dome, computer animated dinosaurs show! A larger than life extravaganza rife with roaring monsters from the ancient age: bounding, stomping, flying, hunting, and foraging frenetically above us.

 

Well, by heavens, now we can tell the world that the dinosaurs have arrived at the Southworth Planetarium! (Or, to get the verb tense right, they WILL arrive on September 6, 2013.)

 

Dinosaurs!

 

Propel yourself back through the epochs toexplore an Earth teeming with Pteradons, Triceratrops and, of course, the ferocious -and therefore wonderfully marketable- T-Rex!

 

Sir Richard Owen*

 

And, if we can say so, this is NOT your great great great grandfather's dinosaur show with slides and lethargic Sunday afternoon nature special narration. Instead, we're embarking on a causality violating adventure through time to discover a planet dominated by the largest land animals that ever set claw to topsoil.

 

Dinosaurs

 

This September, come back to the Southworth Planetarium and then venture back to the Mesozoic era for a personal odyssey through the realm of the dinosaurs.

The Philosopher's Dome

Socrates


THE PHILOSOPHER'S DOME


A new discussion group from the planetarium that brought you the "Midnight Metaphysics Society."    Are you interested in contemplation? Do you want to engage in philosophical discussions with like-minded people?    Would you like to discuss and contemplate in a star dome? 


Four philosophers


"The Philosopher's Dome" involves a lecture format.  Share your ideas about the profoundest questions of life, nature, ethics, and a variety of other topics.     The only pre-requisite is an interest in philosophy and an inclination to share that interest with others.


And, you determine the cost:  admission by donation.


Location: Southworth Planetarium

 DINOSAURS AT DUSK!

more dinosaurs

 

A whirlwind time travel adventure back to the epoch of the dinosaurs!

 

We have to tell you that we've been waiting aeons to announce that we have a full dome, computer animated dinosaurs show! A larger than life extravaganza rife with roaring monsters from the ancient age: bounding, stomping, flying, hunting, and foraging frenetically above us.

 

Well, by heavens, now we can tell the world that the dinosaurs have arrived at the Southworth Planetarium! (Or, to get the verb tense right, they WILL arrive on September 6, 2013.)

 

Dinosaurs!

 

Propel yourself back through the epochs toexplore an Earth teeming with Pteradons, Triceratrops and, of course, the ferocious -and therefore wonderfully marketable- T-Rex!

 

Sir Richard Owen*

 

And, if we can say so, this is NOT your great great great grandfather's dinosaur show with slides and lethargic Sunday afternoon nature special narration. Instead, we're embarking on a causality violating adventure through time to discover a planet dominated by the largest land animals that ever set claw to topsoil.

 

Dinosaurs

 

This September, come back to the Southworth Planetarium and then venture back to the Mesozoic era for a personal odyssey through the realm of the dinosaurs.

 

Matinee and evening shows!

1:00 PM to 2:00 PM

 DINOSAURS AT DUSK!

more dinosaurs

 

A whirlwind time travel adventure back to the epoch of the dinosaurs!

 

We have to tell you that we've been waiting aeons to announce that we have a full dome, computer animated dinosaurs show! A larger than life extravaganza rife with roaring monsters from the ancient age: bounding, stomping, flying, hunting, and foraging frenetically above us.

 

Well, by heavens, now we can tell the world that the dinosaurs have arrived at the Southworth Planetarium! (Or, to get the verb tense right, they WILL arrive on September 6, 2013.)

 

Dinosaurs!

 

Propel yourself back through the epochs toexplore an Earth teeming with Pteradons, Triceratrops and, of course, the ferocious -and therefore wonderfully marketable- T-Rex!

 

Sir Richard Owen*

 

And, if we can say so, this is NOT your great great great grandfather's dinosaur show with slides and lethargic Sunday afternoon nature special narration. Instead, we're embarking on a causality violating adventure through time to discover a planet dominated by the largest land animals that ever set claw to topsoil.

 

Dinosaurs

 

This September, come back to the Southworth Planetarium and then venture back to the Mesozoic era for a personal odyssey through the realm of the dinosaurs.

 

Matinee and evening shows!

 DINOSAURS AT DUSK!

more dinosaurs

 

A whirlwind time travel adventure back to the epoch of the dinosaurs!

 

We have to tell you that we've been waiting aeons to announce that we have a full dome, computer animated dinosaurs show! A larger than life extravaganza rife with roaring monsters from the ancient age: bounding, stomping, flying, hunting, and foraging frenetically above us.

 

Well, by heavens, now we can tell the world that the dinosaurs have arrived at the Southworth Planetarium! (Or, to get the verb tense right, they WILL arrive on September 6, 2013.)

 

Dinosaurs!

 

Propel yourself back through the epochs toexplore an Earth teeming with Pteradons, Triceratrops and, of course, the ferocious -and therefore wonderfully marketable- T-Rex!

 

Sir Richard Owen*

 

And, if we can say so, this is NOT your great great great grandfather's dinosaur show with slides and lethargic Sunday afternoon nature special narration. Instead, we're embarking on a causality violating adventure through time to discover a planet dominated by the largest land animals that ever set claw to topsoil.

 

Dinosaurs

 

This September, come back to the Southworth Planetarium and then venture back to the Mesozoic era for a personal odyssey through the realm of the dinosaurs.

September 19, 2013 “Health Information Technology: Enhancing the Quality and Safety of Patient Care” Prof. Carol Fackler, DNSc, RN, School of Nursing

This presentation will introduce the audience to health information technology as it is emerging in the U.S. as an important component of our health care system.  A brief history of health information technology will be followed by a more detailed discussion of the electronic health record, clinical decision support systems, and telehealth.  Applications of health information technology in Maine, both current and projected, will be described.  Plenty of time will be allotted for questions from the audience.

Carol Fackler, DNSc, RN joined the USM faculty in 2010 as an Assistant Professor of Nursing.  She formerly served as a Visiting Assistant Professor in the School of Nursing at Fairfield University in Connecticut.  Her practice career of over 25 years as an emergency nurse has provided Dr. Fackler with firsthand knowledge of the health care delivery system.  Dr. Fackler’s interest in health information technology emerged as a direct result of her knowledge of hospital organizations and health care delivery systems; and in 2010, she developed the informatics technology course for the Doctor of Nursing Practice program at USM.

Dr. Fackler received her undergraduate degree in nursing from the University of Rhode Island in 1973; her MS from the College of Nursing and Health Professions from the University of Massachusetts-Boston in 2002; and her Doctor of Nursing Science from Yale University in 2010. 

At USM, Dr. Fackler currently teaches undergraduate and graduate research, as well as informatics technology.  She is currently developing a graduate course on population health for the spring of 2013.

Little Star That Could

THE LITTLE STAR THAT COULD

Full dome show

(Presented in the memory of Steve Innes 1955-2011)

A little yellow star travels through the galaxy in search of planets that will give it its special name.  During his journey, this star learns about the many types of stars that live in the galaxy.    Hot blue stars; cool red stars; double stars, large stars and much more.

Produced by the Audio Visual Imagineering Company and based on the popular planetarium show of the same name, "The Little Star That Could"  is an engaging and fun show that introduces your child to the wonders of stellar astronomy.

A splendid star show for the entire family!

This omni-dome show uses the entire dome as the screen for a visually immersive experience.

$5.50 - adults;   $5.00 children

 DINOSAURS AT DUSK!

more dinosaurs

 

A whirlwind time travel adventure back to the epoch of the dinosaurs!

 

We have to tell you that we've been waiting aeons to announce that we have a full dome, computer animated dinosaurs show! A larger than life extravaganza rife with roaring monsters from the ancient age: bounding, stomping, flying, hunting, and foraging frenetically above us.

 

Well, by heavens, now we can tell the world that the dinosaurs have arrived at the Southworth Planetarium! (Or, to get the verb tense right, they WILL arrive on September 6, 2013.)

 

Dinosaurs!

 

Propel yourself back through the epochs toexplore an Earth teeming with Pteradons, Triceratrops and, of course, the ferocious -and therefore wonderfully marketable- T-Rex!

 

Sir Richard Owen*

 

And, if we can say so, this is NOT your great great great grandfather's dinosaur show with slides and lethargic Sunday afternoon nature special narration. Instead, we're embarking on a causality violating adventure through time to discover a planet dominated by the largest land animals that ever set claw to topsoil.

 

Dinosaurs

 

This September, come back to the Southworth Planetarium and then venture back to the Mesozoic era for a personal odyssey through the realm of the dinosaurs.

 

Matinee and evening shows!

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!

 DINOSAURS AT DUSK!

more dinosaurs

 

A whirlwind time travel adventure back to the epoch of the dinosaurs!

 

We have to tell you that we've been waiting aeons to announce that we have a full dome, computer animated dinosaurs show! A larger than life extravaganza rife with roaring monsters from the ancient age: bounding, stomping, flying, hunting, and foraging frenetically above us.

 

Well, by heavens, now we can tell the world that the dinosaurs have arrived at the Southworth Planetarium! (Or, to get the verb tense right, they WILL arrive on September 6, 2013.)

 

Dinosaurs!

 

Propel yourself back through the epochs toexplore an Earth teeming with Pteradons, Triceratrops and, of course, the ferocious -and therefore wonderfully marketable- T-Rex!

 

Sir Richard Owen*

 

And, if we can say so, this is NOT your great great great grandfather's dinosaur show with slides and lethargic Sunday afternoon nature special narration. Instead, we're embarking on a causality violating adventure through time to discover a planet dominated by the largest land animals that ever set claw to topsoil.

 

Dinosaurs

 

This September, come back to the Southworth Planetarium and then venture back to the Mesozoic era for a personal odyssey through the realm of the dinosaurs.

 

Matinee and evening shows!

1:00 PM to 2:00 PM

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/

 DINOSAURS AT DUSK!

more dinosaurs

 

A whirlwind time travel adventure back to the epoch of the dinosaurs!

 

We have to tell you that we've been waiting aeons to announce that we have a full dome, computer animated dinosaurs show! A larger than life extravaganza rife with roaring monsters from the ancient age: bounding, stomping, flying, hunting, and foraging frenetically above us.

 

Well, by heavens, now we can tell the world that the dinosaurs have arrived at the Southworth Planetarium! (Or, to get the verb tense right, they WILL arrive on September 6, 2013.)

 

Dinosaurs!

 

Propel yourself back through the epochs toexplore an Earth teeming with Pteradons, Triceratrops and, of course, the ferocious -and therefore wonderfully marketable- T-Rex!

 

Sir Richard Owen*

 

And, if we can say so, this is NOT your great great great grandfather's dinosaur show with slides and lethargic Sunday afternoon nature special narration. Instead, we're embarking on a causality violating adventure through time to discover a planet dominated by the largest land animals that ever set claw to topsoil.

 

Dinosaurs

 

This September, come back to the Southworth Planetarium and then venture back to the Mesozoic era for a personal odyssey through the realm of the dinosaurs.

 

Matinee and evening shows!

3:00 PM to 4:00 PM
