Planetarium: Solar Superstorms
$2 children, active military & senior citizens
Free for ASU students, faculty & staff
Join us for an exciting full-dome astronomy show!
“Solar Superstorms” takes viewers into the tangle of magnetic fields and super-hot 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 supercomputing initiative, Blue Waters, based at the National Center for Supercomputing Applications (NCSA) at the University of Illinois.
