Apollo to Artemis
Join PEEC in the planetarium for a look at the Artemis mission and where it is heading.
50 years after the last people walked on the moon in the Apollo missions, NASA is working on the program that will take us back. The Artemis 1 mission will test the Orion spacecraft and the SLS rocket as well as the systems on the ground. Learn about the previous trips to the moon, why we are returning to the moon, who will be going, and what we hope to learn from the mission.
Because seating is limited in the planetarium, advance registration is encouraged! Sign up now to reserve your seats.
Planetarium events are not recommended for kids under age 4.
Admission: $6/adult, $4/child.
