Roseboro Salemburg Middle School students were treated with a visit from the UNC Chapel Hill, Morehead Planetarium and Science Center March 2.
Founded in 2010, Morehead’s mobile planetarium (formerly known as PLANETS) is the leading full dome digital video mobile planetarium in North Carolina. Morehead’s mobile planetarium provides an inflatable dome, a digital projection system.
The students from various science classes attended a show entitled “Solar System Odyssey.” This show is a futuristic adventure, exploring what could happen if humans consume all the resources of Earth. Jack Larson embarks on a quest to discover a new home for humans to colonize, piloting his spacecraft on a wild ride through our solar system.
The material contained in this planetarium show is based on work supported by the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA). The students thoroughly enjoyed themselves and were very appreciative for this learning experience.
