Science & Nature Project LIVE: The Space Shape Scavenger Hunt


Friday, June 12

4pm Where

Zoom and FB Live

Admission Registration required

Muffins, chicken bones, footballs, shoes, cauliflower… What do all these have in common? Nothing—except that they all have similar-shaped look-alikes in space! Not all celestial objects are simple spheres, like planets and Sun-sized stars, or disks, like the Milky Way galaxy. There are shapes out there that you’d never expect to see out the window of your starship.

Join Marc Taylor, Manager of Planetarium and Science Programs, and HRM Planetarium Educators, live in our Zoom science lab. We’ll do a roundup of household objects that resemble some of these space oddities and also explain why they are shaped so strangely. Suitable for ages 6 and up.

This live Zoom event will also be streamed on Facebook Live.
