Birth of the Universe will describe what we know about the beginning of the cosmos. The main focus of the program will be to present the evidence we have for the Big Bang theory, such as the cosmic microwave background radiation which is omnipresent throughout the universe, and the motion of galaxies which seem to be flying away from us. The audience will also have the opportunity to enjoy several late autumn constellations such as Pegasus and Orion projected on the dome.
