Longway Planetarium to present STARS in a whole new light
Mark Hamill narrates this journey from our Sun to the edge of a Black Hole
Flint, MI – Now at Longway Planetarium-a stunning new program called STARS. Audiences will explore the lives of the stars, how they are born, how they die, and how human understanding of the stars has changed over time. This show is narrated by Mark Hamill and will play at Longway Planetarium daily at 2:30pm until April 8, 2016. To watch the trailer, buy tickets online, or get more information visit Longway.org.
Every star has a story. Some are as old as time, faint and almost forgotten. Others burn bright and end their lives in powerful explosions. New stars are created every day, born of vast clouds of gas and dust. Through every phase of their existence, stars release the energy that powers the Universe. Journey to the farthest reaches of our galaxy and experience both the awesome beauty and destructive power of STARS.
The stunning animation highlighted by astronauts, spacecraft, telescopes, nebulas, clusters, and more, was created by the talented team of the National Space Centre (Leicester, UK). 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 sound track.
