​The Fall 2019 Physics Colloquium Series kicks off with a planetarium show for the entire campus from Noon-12:50 p.m., Friday, September 6th, at the Anderson Hancock Planetarium. The Physics Department will be showing the award-winning "Dawn of the Space Age" to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the first moon landing.

From the launch of the first artificial satellite Sputnik to the magnificent lunar landings and privately operated space flights, be immersed and overwhelmed with this most accurate historic reconstruction of Man’s first steps into space. Who were these men and women that took part in these death-defying endeavors? Witness their drive, their passion, and their perseverance to explore, in Dawn of the Space Age.

If interested, you can watch a trailer of the show. 

The department will provide pizza and drinks in the lobby after the show. If you are planning to attend, please let Andrea Richardson (adr003@marietta.edu) know to help them get a pizza count.
