Cosmic Recipe

February 5, 2019 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am

The famous astronomer Carl Sagan once said: “If you wish to make an apple pie from scratch, you must first invent the universe.” Though that may sound crazy, Sagan was on to something big. Want to know what? Pull up a chair at the planetarium’s Periodic Table and learn the cosmic recipes that created everything in our world — even us.  Discover how the Big Bang cooked up everyday elements such as the calcium in our teeth, the silicon in our smartphones, and even the carbon in our apple pies in “Cosmic Recipe.”

Tickets for planetarium programs are $6 for Adults, $5 for UMaine Students/Veterans/Senior Citizens, and $4 for children under 12. Click here to view the calendar.

Tickets may be purchased online, by phone at 207.581.1341, or at the Emera Astronomy Center ticket box office prior to the show.
