Immerse yourself in a race to the Moon 40 years after the historic Apollo landings.
Learn about the history of lunar exploration, and the Moon’s resources. Discover what humanity’s future on the Moon might hold. See how a competition among privately funded international teams is ushering in a new era of lunar exploration.
Narrated by Tim Allen, BACK TO THE MOON FOR GOOD presents the Google Lunar XPRIZE, and the personal stories of competition and collaboration it inspires.







treehouse.jpgTravel with the brother-sister duo, Jack and Annie, in their Magic Tree House as they discover a note that asks them to answer a series of six questions about space. With the help of the astronomer, the Internet, an astronaut, books and the writer of the mysterious note, Jack and Annie are taken on a wondrous journey of adventure and learning.
This exciting voyage will carry visitors to the planets and far out into the Universe where Jack and Annie nearly get… Well, we don’t want to give it away. The adventure is just beginning!
The planetarium is located in the Farrington Building Room 102, email Mike Prokosch at **mwp007@shsu.edu** for more information.

Housing a state of the art Mediaglobe I projector, the Sam Houston State Planetarium is capable of taking visitors on a virtual tour of the night sky as it would appear for an observer anywhere in the world , thousands of years in the past or thousands of years in the future. The planetarium is open to the public at the scheduled times and admission to the shows is always free. In the past we have hosted Boy and Girl Scout troops, the local Audubon Society, and local schools.
