Pull up a chair at our Planetarium’s Periodic Table and learn the cosmic recipes that created everything in our world-even us! Discover how the Big Bang and the stars have cooked up the everyday elements we interact with every day-like the calcium in our teeth, the silicon in our smartphones, and even the carbon in our apple pies. Explore the world of chemistry-the protons, neutrons and electrons! See how tiny atoms relate to the mammoth stars! Connect the physical worlds of the small and large in this engaging and inspiring show.
