Program Description

About this event:

Join the Sciencenter to learn about the history of the Sagan Planet Walk, an exhibit that reaches from Ithaca to Hawaii. Then take a virtual journey through our stellar neighborhood with Cornell's Spacecraft Planetary Imaging Facility (SPIF)! Visit planets, dwarf planets, and moons through the "eyes" of the many intrepid spacecraft they have sent out, featuring the Magic Planet, a spherical projector that instantly becomes a globe of any world we have visited.
