"Birth Of The Solar System" Planetarium Show

      Our Solar System, as we know it, contains one star, eight planets, dozens of moons, and countless comets & asteroids. When and how did it come to into being and why does it look the way it does?

      Birth of the Solar System will take you back several billion years and show you how a process scientists call "accretion" is responsible for the construction and current appearance of our Solar System.
