The Edelman Planetarium in Science Hall at Rowan University will present ?Ring World? on Fridays and Saturdays, July 29 to August 13, at 7 p.m. ?Ring World? features colorful images of Saturn, its rings and its many moons taken by the Cassini space probe, which has been in orbit around the planet for more than a year.

?Ring World? replaces ?Deep Impact,? which will be shown for the last time on Friday and Saturday, July 22 and 23, at 7 p.m. ?Deep Impact? portrays the NASA mission to a comet that ended on July 4 when an 800-pound copper space probe smashed into the comet?s nucleus at 23,000 miles per hour and uncovered material that dates back to the beginning of the solar system. Stunning images and movies from the impact will be included in the presentation.

Admission fees are $5 for adults and $3 for children under 13, seniors over 59 and Rowan students. The planetarium is located in Science Hall on the north side of Route 322 east of large parking lot ?A.?

In addition to star shows, the planetarium presents a laser light show on Saturdays at 8:30 p.m. ?Laser Beatles? features music from all the well-known albums of the Fab Four, accompanied by flashing multicolored laser patterns and images. Admission prices are the same as for star shows.
