As part of the American Museum of Natural History, the state-of-the-art Rose Center for Space and Earth takes visitors from the inner workings of our planet to the outer limits of the galaxy. The 87-foot-tall glowing sphere which appears to float in a glass-walled cube houses the Hayden Planetarium, which features the most technologically advanced space theater in the world, in which visitors can experience space shows of incredible realism.
The Big Bang Theater allows visitors to look down into a concave screen to view the Big Bang presentation, a dramatic re-creation of the first minutes of the origins of the universe. The presentation examines issues such as how the universe evolved and provides guests of all ages with an understanding of the theory.
