We all know about the Big Bang, or at least have heard about it, but what really happened to create all the stellar constellations, galaxy clusters and our very own pale blue dot in the universe? Astronomers have some clues about how it may have happened, but much remained unsolved and up for speculation by physicists and philosophers alike. In the newest exhibit at the UW-Milwaukee planetarium, they hope to captivate audiences with those same questions and inspire curiosity in a cosmic showing of planetary bodies. Kai Brito speaks with Jean Creighton, astronomer and director of the UW-Milwaukee Manfred-Olson Planetarium.
Birth of the Universe takes place every Friday from January 11 to February 22 with two nightly showings at 7:00 to 8:00 p.m. and 8:15 to 9:15 p.m. More information can be found here:
