“To Space and Back,” the new public star show at the Edelman Planetarium at Rowan University, Glassboro, takes the audience on a journey from the far reaches of the  known universe to the surface of the Earth, describing how the technology that transports people through space is paving the way for the devices and apps they use every day.

“To Space and Back,” the new public star show at the Edelman Planetarium at Rowan University, Glassboro, takes the audience on a journey from the far reaches of the  known universe to the surface of the Earth, describing how the technology that transports people through space is paving the way for the devices and apps they use every day.

“To Space and Back” plays on Sundays at 3 p.m. through March 9. In addition to the full-dome movie, planetarium director Keith Johnson will use the immersive power of the SciDome projection system in a live presentation portraying some of the details of satellite technology, from weather satellites, through the GPS system that drivers use to navigate automobiles, out to distant space probes exploring the solar system.

Admission fees are $5 for adults, $3 for children 12 and younger, $3 for seniors older than 60, and $3 for Rowan students. The planetarium is located on the ground floor of Science Hall at Rowan University. More information is available at www.rowan.edu/planetarium/. The planetarium and its programming are supported by generous grants from Jean and Ric Edelman.
