Exploding Universe
PG | 40 min. | Educational Planetarium Show
Out of devastation comes new creation. Explosive events have shaped and transformed the Universe, as well as the Earth itself, into what it is today. And not all of them have been on a grand scale.

Throughout this constant evolution of the Universe, some of the most elementary particles have still managed to endure. This show follows the path of one of those “particles,” a proton, as it participates in some of nature’s most astounding events of rebirth and renewal: from supernovae and colliding black holes to supervolcanoes and proton collisions. Come and experience the Universe’s ultimate blowups.

Participation in Museum Day is open to any tax-exempt or governmental museum or cultural venue on a voluntary basis. Smithsonian magazine encourages museum visitation, but is not responsible for and does not endorse the content of the participating museums and cultural venues, and does not subsidize museums that participate.
