ExperienceX: Astronomy’s Golden Age

  • Planetarium, Astronomy Building 50 St. George Street Toronto, ON, M5S 3H4 Canada (map)

CivicMuslims presents ExperienceX, our flagship social brand where you get to enjoy unique experiences while connecting with other members. Join us for our first ExperienceX event and Experience Astronomy’s Golden Age. 100% of the proceeds from ticket sales is being donated to Red Cross Canada by the University of Toronto in aid of Syrian refugees.

Explore the remarkable astronomical ideas of the Islamic Golden Age and the modern discoveries to which they are connected in this special series of shows presented live by U of T astronomers. Journey through the cosmos to see a binary star set on a distant exoplanet and a star explode as a supernova—and journey back in time to the Big Bang and the birth of the Universe. Think of the planetarium as an interactive movie theatre where the screen is a dome on which any part of the cosmos is projected.

This Planetarium show in Aid of Syrian Refugees is inspired by the idea that all of humanity is #UnitedByTheStars. The shows are an initiative of the U of T Graduate Astronomy Students Association, supported by the Department of Astronomy and Astrophysics and the Dunlap Institute for Astronomy and Astrophysics, University of Toronto.
