The universe is filled with explosive events. Ancient supernovae tore giant stars apart, spreading the atoms that now make up your body into deep space. Subatomic particles smash into one another in the Large Hadron Collider, echoing the foundational events of our early universe. And, of course, there was once a Really Big Bang… Exploding Universe portrays these events in all their glory, and shows how they impact your life.

During this 1-hour long show we will also help you identify the brightest planets and constellations visible in the sky.
