“Exploring New Horizons” is a full-dome planetarium show that explores the New Horizons spacecraft and its mission to dwarf planet Pluto and other KBOs. This program also exhibits the importance of the scientific method and how it applies to our understanding of the Solar System.

Starting from ancient times, learn about the history of planetary discovery, especially that of Pluto, and how it has led to an amazing mission to explore the Kuiper Belt.

Typical to the educational purpose of Bays Mountain Planetarium, this program includes a live section midway to engage your audience in an interactive activity to increase understanding and retention.

The program is designed to not be dated and is a great way to introduce your audience to the NH mission both before and after flyby of Pluto. The final part of the program is designed for you, the planetarian, to cover the latest news and discoveries regarding NH and Pluto through a live recap.
