Edelman Planetarium offers look at the cosmosApril 20, 2007
Rowan University's Edelman Planetarium is offering a look at the cosmos now through the end of July.
"Images of the Infinite," the new star show at Edelman Planetarium, uses the planetarium's technology to display some of the wonders of the cosmos and explains why a telescope in space ? The Hubble Space Telescope, in this case ? is one of the sharpest tools on the astronomical workbench.
By far the most productive spacecraft ever sent into space, according to Edelman Director Keith Johnson, the Hubble is as big as a school bus, orbits 350 miles above the Earth and has sent back thousands of images of colorful nebulae, exploded stars and distant galaxies and many gigabytes of information about these objects.
"Images of the Infinite" will be presented on Saturday nights at 7 p.m. through the end of July. Ticket prices are $5 for adults, $3 for children under 13, $3 for senior citizens older than 59, and $3 for Rowan students with ID. The planetarium is located in the Science Hall on the main Rowan campus; parking is available in Lot A at the west end of the campus, and the Science Hall is one building east of that lot.
