Theme: Living in Space

Our theme is ‘Living in Space”. At this Adult Night, we shall virtually explore the International Space Station using VR headsets, and learn how astronauts might be able to grow food crops in space and even on Mars. Finally, sign up for a Star Lab session, and explore the “nearby” solar system from the vantage point of a low Earth orbit!

We have four fantastic learning experiences planned for our visitors:

  1. Mars Airlock Display - Learn about the award-winning design of a Mars Airlock that was designed to allow people to transition from the low atmosphere pressure of Mars, to a living space with the same atmospheric pressure of earth.

  2. Star Lab - Check out some of the things we have learned from missions on the ISS in this Star Lab session. Sign up for one of our five sessions upon entrance to the event! Presentations are at 7:15pm, 7:45pm, 8:15pm, 8:45pm, 9:15pm (sign up at entrance)

  3. How Low is a ‘Low Earth’ Orbit - Visit with Royal Astronomical Association astronomers who will set up telescopes outside the Science Centre and give you a zoomed-in view of what’s overhead!

  4. How to Radio into Space - Join the Regina Amateur Radio Association (RARA) as they try to contact the ISS.

  5. Mars Research From Space -

     The Makerspace is becoming a space station for the evening, and guests are invited to join the crew and help research the possibility of setting up colonies on Mars. Visitors can participate in our three exciting activities:

    1. Create water carriers that don’t require plastic,

    2. Create a marsarium for growing crops on Mars

    3. Tour the International Space Station using a virtual reality headset

Thanks to our community partners: The Royal Astronomy Society of Canada, the Regina Amateur Radio Association (RARA), and the University of Regina Mars Airlock Design Team for making this event possible!
