Planetarium Show: “Solar Superstorms”

7:00pm CDT October 27

Vincent Nursing-Physical Science Building

The ASU Planetarium will present the full-dome public astronomy show “Solar Superstorms” at 7 p.m. Thursdays, Sept. 8 - Nov. 17, in the Vincent Nursing-Physical Science Building, 2333 Vanderventer St.

“Solar Superstorms”takes viewers into the tangle of magnetic fields and superhot plasma that vent the sun’s rage in dramatic flares, violent solar tornadoes, and the largest eruptions in the solar system: coronal mass ejections.

The show features one of the most intensive efforts ever made to visualize the inner workings of the sun, including a series of groundbreaking scientific visualizations calculated on the giant new supercomputing initiative, Blue Waters, based at the National Center for Supercomputing Applications (NCSA) at the University of Illinois.
