A Celebration of Saturn

In 1999, the United Nations declared October 4-10 World Space Week - an annual event celebrating the international space exploration achievements that have “led to the betterment of the human condition.”

Join us as we celebrate Saturn and the legacy of the Cassini mission through hands-on activities and space-themed demonstrations – even a musical performance! Get ready for an out-of-this-world experience – and gain a unique perspective of our stars and other visible objects in the night sky.

• Listen to the sounds of Saturn with astrophysicist and musician, Dr. Matt Russo from the Canadian Institute for Theoretical Astrophysics
