Upcoming Events in the Sudekum Planetarium
Nashville, Tenn., March 2, 2017—This month brings more exciting experiences to the Sudekum Planetarium’s 63-foot dome, including a preview of a new program at Adventure Science Center’s MAD Bash: Science of Taste, a new fulldome feature during Second Saturday, and another chance to experience Yoga Under the Stars.
A Taste of Saturn at MAD Bash | Saturday, March 4 (after-hours)
Tickets available at www.adventuresci.org/madbash.
For Adventure Science Center’s signature fundraiser, the Sudekum Planetarium staff has developed a special 15-minute peek at a new show about the Cassini mission. The program will showcase the many ways that the Cassini–Huygens spacecraft has helped us explore Saturn and its moons over the last two decades. The show will feature visuals from the mission, 3D models of the spacecraft and its trajectories, and a brief history of space exploration from Galileo Galilei’s time to the future.
Tickets for the MAD Bash: Science of Taste fundraiser start at $100 and include access to all of the evening’s festivities, including wickedly-infused cocktails inspired by SALT & VINE, delectable infused pairings, live culinary demonstrations, exciting hands-on science activities that explore taste, local youth bands, and a live and silent auction.
