Y7 trip to Plymouth Planetarium

Posted: 1st July 2015

Worm Holes, Black Holes, White Holes and Red Giants were the wonders we were treated to when all the Conway Year 7 pupils had an awestruck time at Plymouth University's Immersive Vision Theatre (Planetarium) on the last day in June. Luke Christison, the Planetarium's astronomy guru, treated the pupils to a spectacular show explaining how vast, how amazing and how much we have learned about our universe in recent decades since technology allowed us to view objects invisible to the naked eye. Using state-of-the-art computer graphics linked in real time to satellites currently orbiting the earth so fast that they travel around our globe at least seven times a day, it enabled the pupils to look back on the earth as it is right now then fly out among the stars of our galaxy and examine them, close up and personal. An awesome educational and fun trip!
