Lectures & Lasers - The Science Behind the Awesome Sights of Rocket Launches

Want to impress your friends with your knowledge of science and culture? Looking for a new date night activity? Just want to kick back and watch a laser show? Join us at Chabot for our new Lectures & Lasers series! Every month we’ll be joined by experts, writers, and entertainers to delve into a new topic from rocket launches to pop astrology and everything in between. Then grab a drink and head to the planetarium dome for an immersive, multi-sensory music and laser light show. Shows, including the Beatles, U2, and Pink Floyd, will rotate each month. Beer, wine, non-alcoholic beverages, and desserts will be available for purchase. Bean Sprouts Café will be open from 6:30pm-8:30pm for dinner. Come early to explore the Center and enjoy dinner at Bean Sprouts Café before the show!  (This event is recommended for ages 15 and up).

Rockets put on an impressive show, but you might have wondered exactly why the Space shuttles’ engines produce an almost transparent exhaust, while the boosters generate an intense white smoky flame. The answer of course involves rocket science and a lot of amazing visuals looking in details at how rockets light up the sky.
