A tour of what’s up there from the glittering stars, past the planets and out to deep space, this journey explores space. The ‘Trip’ explains how each celestial body behaves and appears to our eyes or the astronomer’s telescope. Watch the moon orbit, Orion battle Taurus and stars being born on this race to space. “Trip Through Space” is suitable for the whole family ages 6 and up.
