Description

Journey to the Stars, shown in the Hayden Planetarium, is narrated by actress Whoopi Goldberg and lets visitors experience the life and death of the stars in the night sky.

Audiences travel 13 billion years into the past, when the first stars were born, and witness brilliant supernova explosions that sent new kinds of matter coursing through the universe, into the atoms of our own bodies and the air we breathe. They visit the heart of our fiery Sun, and glimpse its eventual demise as it transforms into a massive red giant some five billion years in the future. Visitors tour stellar formations, explore new celestial mysteries, and discover the fascinating, unfolding story of the stars. Click here for a preview trailer.
