    May the 4th be at the Cernan Earth and Space Center

    There has been a lot going on lately, and so May the 4th snuck up on us, like the Sand People of Tatooine.

    May the 4th is also known as Star Wars Day because it sounds like May the Force.

    In celebration of the saga that is Star Wars, the Cernan Earth and Space Center will present the fulldome feature STARS at 4 pm on Wednesday, May 4, 2016.

    STARS focuses on the lives of the stars, how they are born, how they die, and how human understanding of the stars has changed over time. From Native Americans to Newton, from the electromagnetic spectrum to Einstein, audiences will explore nebulae, star clusters, pulsars, black holes, and more.

    This dramatic program features the voice talent of Mark Hamill. The Nashville Symphony Orchestra, conducted by Albert-George Schram, resident conductor, performed part of the STARS soundtrack. STARS was made possible, in part, by a gift from SunTrust Bank, Inc.

    Admission will be just $4 per person and costumes are encouraged.
