The two-projector SciDome HD delivers bright, high definition imagery. The show will be a space related show that is displayed on the 360° dome screen. We are the first in Canada to have this system.
Yukon's Northern Lights
The beauty and majesty of the Aurora Borealis take centre stage featuring footage shot exclusively in the Yukon over a three year period. This variety of Auroral motion and color is set to music, creating an exciting and emotional tone for viewers. One of the highlights of the show is the scientific input regarding the known causes of the Aurora, as well as information and footage of the launch by NASA of the THEMIS mission to solve the Aurora mystery.
New to the centre is Viewspace a direct link to the hubble space telescope on a 60" flat screen tv. ViewSpace is an exhibit from the Space Telescope Science Institute, home of NASA’s Hubble Space Telescope and its successor, the James Webb Space Telescope. It features an ever changing kaleidoscope of inspiring and educational presentations of the latest and most beautiful in astronomy and space-based earth science. Free to the public in the lobby.
