To Space and BackFREE PLANETARIUM SHOW:  To Space and Back

Join us on an incredible journey from the far reaches of our known universe to our own planet. This is an extraordinary story of human ingenuity and incredible engineering, describing how the technology that transports us through space is paving the way for the devices and apps we use every day. What is happening above is coming back down to Earth! To Space and Back, narrated by James May, explores the way each of us has been changed by the discoveries made by the international space program. From the devices we use every day, to the tools that are breaking new ground in medicine and engineering, we can thank space exploration for making our modern lives possible.
