Planetarium closure 10 February-9 March 2019: We are excited to announce the Melbourne Planetarium will be upgrading its state-of-the-art visual system to one that is brighter and three times the resolution of the current system. The upgraded system will give you an even better, immersive and awe-inspiring astronomical experience. The Planetarium will be closed during this period.
Solar System Odyssey is an adventure set in the future, in a time when humans have depleted the natural resources of their home planet. The hero of this story, Jack Larson, is sent on a mission to discover a new home that humans can colonise.
Explore our Solar System with Jack as he looks for answers to some important scientific questions:
How are the worlds of our Solar System alike?
How are they different?
What must those worlds have in order for humans to live there?
The journey takes Jack Larson and you on an exciting exploration visiting interesting places such as the icy rings of Saturn, Jupiter's volcano-ridden moon Io and the sub-zero methane lakes of Saturn's moon Titan.
