The Christa McAuliffe Planetarium will present the program,
"Violent Universe" at 7:00 and 8:00 p.m. on Tuesday, May 16.

"Violent Universe" is one of the latest full dome programs produced by Evans & Sutherland. Under the care of Emmy award winning space artist, Don Davis, this beautifully crafted show highlights the mysterious forces at work in the universe around us. Comets, asteroids, and meteors hurtling through space. Stars collapsing under their own gravity. Infernos of nuclear energy releasing their deadly radiation across the universe. Witness the raw power of the cosmos in this thrilling show that gives you a front-row seat to watch as worlds collide! Narrated by Patrick Stewart, star of the X-Men Films and Star Trek – The Next Generation.

In addition to the program, there will be a tour of the constellations and planets that can be seen in the May sky.
