As part of the International Year of Astronomy celebrations we have teamed up with the Royal Observatory Greenwich to create a brand new Planetarium show: SCI-FI-UNIVERSE where we look at the night sky from a sci-fi perspective.

Do you know where Space 1999's Moonbase Alpha was located? In Hitchhikers' Zaphod and Ford came from Betelgeuse, but do you know where that is in the night sky? And what would the sky look like from Vulcan? Find out which stars and planets in science fiction films and literature are real or simply journey to a 'galaxy far far away' in this unique planetarium experience.

The world premiere of this show takes place on Friday 23rd October 2009. Tickets for the evening include a full programme events and a chance to win a seat at our exclusive screening of the new STAR TREK movie - in the planetarium!

The evening includes DJs, photo opportunities with our stormtrooper unit and access to the observatory's galleries.
