iPOP Laser Show

New music from today’s Pop charts mixed with a classic from Michael Jackson and the Jackson 5. iPop features sizzling stars, both past and present, in brilliant laser light.  This one is a guaranteed hit with the younger kids as it features songs from Justin Beiber and Ludacris to Katy Perry and the Black Eyed Peas.

Stars

Every star has a story. Some are as old as time, faint and almost forgotten. Others burn bright and end their lives in powerful explosions. Journey to the furthest reaches of our galaxy and experience both the awesome beauty and destructive power of STARS.  This dramatic program features the voice talent of Mark Hamill.

Laser Led Zeppelin

For fans who came of age after drummer John Bonham died in 1980, Led Zeppelin can never be experienced live the way it was intended. That’s where the planetarium came in.  In 2010 the Hylton Planetarium lured fans into a world normally reserved for star-gazing, where employees beamed laser animations onto a dome ceiling while tunes from bands such as Zeppelin, Pink Floyd and U2 played on the planetarium dome. It wasn’t quite the same thing as being at a concert, but it was a step up from lying on the shag carpet in the basement listening to headphones.

Dynamic Earth

Dynamic Earth explores the inner workings of Earth's climate system, following a trail of energy that flows from our Sun into the interconnected systems that create our climate. You'll ride on swirling ocean and wind currents, dive into the heart of a hurricane, come face-to-face with sharks and whales and fly into fiery volcanoes!  This fulldome planetarium show is the result of a two-year collaboration between Spitz Creative Media, the advanced visualization lab at the National Center of Supercomputing Applications at the University of Illinois, and Thomas Lucas Productions Inc. Produced in association with the Denver Museum of Nature & Science and NASA Earth Science. Narrated by Academy Award-nominated actor Liam Neeson.
