Blast off into the summer sky as the Iziko Planetarium and Digital Dome takes you closer to the stars than you’ve ever imagined.
This summer, the Iziko Planetarium and Digital Dome in Cape Town is ready to welcome space cadets and astronauts of all ages to prepare for an astronomical space adventure.
This holiday, all our Planetarium friends are back! Tycho, the Planetarium’s favourite dog, takes young astronauts on a space travel adventure as they take a close-up look at the Sun, play with zero gravity, witness Earth from space, and so much more.
Join Annie and Max for a whirlwind adventure as they explore a new angle on the world and find out more about the seasons in Tilt. Discover how the human body works in CELL! CELL! CELL! Watch Sooki and Raj use a series of fantastic instruments to peer inside complex living cells.
‘Seasoned’ space explorers in search of action can explore what it takes for astronauts to reach an asteroid, and how such an adventure could benefit humankind in Asteroid: Mission Extreme. Cosmic Collisions explores the explosive encounters that ended the age of the dinosaurs and gave birth to new stars, and created conditions essential for life on Earth.
For the less adventurous, sit back, relax, and take a journey To Space and Back. Everyday space exploration is impacting our lives and influencing the way we live. Be part of an incredible journey of discovery; and explore the far reaches of our known universe and our own planet.
The Iziko Planetarium and Digital Dome is open Tuesday – Sunday and Wednesday evenings during the summer holidays. Visit www.iziko.org.za for show times and entrance fees.
