The ISU Planetarium Presents: Life: A Cosmic Story
The Illinois State University Planetarium is excited to offer “Life: A Cosmic Story,” narrated by Academy Award winning actor Jodie Foster. “Life”runs weekends from September 7 – November 10. Show times are Fridays and Saturdays at 7:30 PM. There are no presentations during ISU’s Family Weekend, October 26-27.
“Life: A Cosmic Story”tells the 14-billion-year saga of how we came to be. It’s a journey that begins with a microscopic view inside a plant cell and ends by exploring the vast universe with its billions of galaxies swirling in space.
After each program, we will explore the highlights found in the current evening sky; including the bright stars, constellations, and planets visible from Central Illinois.
Admission to the ISU Planetarium is $4 for adults, $3 for children ages 5-12 and seniors, and $2.00 for children ages 3-4. Tickets may be purchased in the Planetarium Gift Shop, next to the Planetarium, beginning 20 minutes before each show. Seating is limited.
The ISU Planetarium is located under the white domed roof at the eastern end of Felmley Hall of Science Annex. Felmley Hall is located on the northeast corner of the ISU campus at the intersection of College Avenue and School Street.
Free parking for the weekend programs is available a short distance from the ISU Planetarium in University parking lot F-67, located on the east side of School Street.
