Are you ready for a really big trip? For thousands of years, mankind thought that the Earth was the center of the Universe. Thanks to our curiosity, imagination and urge to explore, we now know that planets like our Earth are nothing special in the cosmos. The Sun is just one ordinary star among hundreds of billions in our galaxy, the Milky Way. With the world’s most powerful telescopes, we are able to explore more and more of the Universe. What we have found so far has surpassed even the wildest expectations of scientists as well as authors of science fiction. Most stars have planets — it turns out they are more common than we thought. A huge diversity of different worlds is out there, just waiting to be discovered at the Edelman Planetarium at Rowan University!
Residents of the South Jersey region are invited to join the Rowan University community to reach for the stars in the Edelman Planetarium. Here, visitors can enjoy a wide variety of shows and special events designed to educate, entertain and inspire. Our mission is to advance the understanding of the universe and serve as a public resource for astronomical information. Programs include elements of other natural sciences, education, communications and the fine and performing arts. Come join us as we explore the cosmos! The theater houses a 40-foot diameter dome screen and a digital projection system.
