Roddenberry Planetarium To Host Second Free Show on February 23

After the success of their first free show, El Paso’s own Gene Roddenberry Planetarium is inviting El Pasoans ‘to Boldly Go’ once again.

This time around, it’s a tour of our solar system in fine detail, as Perfect Little Planet explores the eight major planets, starting at 5:30 p.m. Friday evening, February 23rd.

Planetarium officials say the presentation “the show is fully animated and it explores all the 8 major planets of the solar system…it’s perfect for kids of any age.”

Since it’s creation in 1969, the planetarium has hosted well over two and a half million students from the El Paso Independent School District and students from all around the El Paso region.

As part of an initiative to enhance science education in America, the El Paso Public School system, the Junior League of El Paso, and the National Science Foundation pooled their resources and constructed our ‘gateway to the Universe’.
