3, 2, 1… Blast off! What does it take to launch a rocket? Get hands-on and make stomp rockets, straw rockets and bubble rockets as you explore energy and the laws of motion. Then head to the Dome for all-live Cosmic Expeditions at 6:30 pm and 7:15 pm; space is limited to the first 250 guests at each show, no ticket required. Round out your night and purchase a ticket for a special showing of October Sky (rated PG) at 8 pm. After the shows, step outside to stargaze through telescopes with the Richmond Astronomical Society (weather permitting).
Science After Dark admission is $10 for the general public and free for Museum members and college students with a valid ID. Admission includes exhibits and event programming. Guests can add the feature film in the Dome for $5. Members may purchase feature film tickets (or use a Dome pass, if they wish) at Guest Services.
When: Friday, September 21 from 5 to 9 pm
