Mueller Planetarium in the University of Nebraska State Museum's Morrill Hall has announced its updated fulldome schedule starting Feb. 3.
The new schedule includes "Dark," a show exploring the nature of dark matter, a mysterious substance that makes up 80 percent of the mass of the universe. It also includes "Natural Selection," a show that introduces family audiences to the ideas of English naturalist Charles Darwin.
Audiences experience the thrill of scientific discovery with Darwin as they go on a voyage aboard the H.M.S. Beagle and explore the beauty of nature on the Galapagos Islands.
The new schedule effective Feb. 3:
* "Dark" -- Saturdays and Sundays at 2 and 3 p.m.
* "Natural Selection" -- Thursdays at 7 p.m.
Showings of "Dark" will include updates on the current night sky and NASA's Mars Rover "Curiosity."
Morrill Hall is south of 14th and Vine streets on the University of Nebraska-Lincoln City Campus. Parking is free. Planetarium tickets are $9 for adults (19 and older), $5.50 for children and $3 for UNL staff, faculty, and students with valid NU ID, and include museum admission. They can be purchased at the museum's front desk the day of the show.
