Gaze up at the stars through the lens of satellites and spacecraft with “Photography in Space,” a live planetarium show.

Panel participants include Dr. Terry Gosliner, Academy Curator of Invertebrate Zoology; Dr. Arturo Izurieta, Executive Director of the Charles Darwin Foundation; Prof. Bill Durham, Academy Fellow; and Harvey Fineberg, president of the Gordon and Betty Moore Foundation.

At the Project Lab, you’ll see incredible macro images made possible by the GIGAmacro imaging system.
