Join us as we explore how scholars and scientists throughout the ages used the sky as a calendar and clock to measure the passage of time and how their charts and star catalogs were the beginnings of the modern science of astronomy.  Be inspired by astronomer Johannes Kepler’s story – how his theories about planetary ellipses in the early 1600’s opened the universe to exploration in ways he never could have dreamed of.  Today Kepler’s three laws of planetary motion are essential for spaceflight.  You will be immersed in the story of how our ancient skygazing led to astronomy, incredible scientific discoveries, and exploration beyond our home world.  Our future on Mars is built on these discoveries from the past.  Experience our future!  A “Tonight’s Sky” program showing seasonal constellations and planets currently in the night sky will follow the show.
