The Powerhouses of the Universe

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. More than 225 planetariums have presented classic shows produced by the Sudekum Planetarium at the Adventure Science Center. Now, fulldome theaters can enjoy similar Stellar Experiences from the Sudekum Planetarium.
