Big Bangs and Black Holes

Raising the Bar

Primary school children and scientists often ponder the same questions about space. Was there more than one Big Bang? What happens when you fall into a black hole? Will the universe expand forever? 

In this talk Richard outlines the ways that Einstein changed our ideas about space and time and how this leads to deep ideas about the expanding universe and black holes. Now tested with observations and experiments, Richard will share the answers we are finding to some of those questions — and which questions we’re still trying to crack.

Astronomy Public Open Nights

Stargazing

Grab the opportunity to become "Skyentists" for the evening, as you and your family enjoy the wonders of the southern night sky with local amateur astronomers.

See planets such as Mars or Saturn or perhaps take a closer look at the Moon. Learn about our constellations, closest stars, the galactic core and nebulae in our amazing universe.

The Canterbury Astronomical Society observatory has 3 fixed telescopes (12", 14" and a 16") and an assortment of portable telescopes, which will be open during our public open night programme for 2018.

Our introduction talks start at 7:30pm with a sky tour and telescope viewing until 9:00pm. Opening will be dependent on the weather, so please check our website www.cas.org.nz before heading out to the observatory. We will post a status update before 6:45pm confirming whether we are open or not on our website.

Further information of our outreach public open nights can be found on our website www.cas.org.nz.

Please note that we cannot accept gate entry to sold out events. However, you may wish to consider membership, which allows you unlimited access.

Unfortunately weather can effect viewing. In the event that we are closed due to weather, you will be issued a refund and given the opportunity to re-book on-line. We may occasionally run a replacement event the following Friday, - if that happens, your tickets will be automatically transferred.

If you are not able to attend, you can request a refund up to 7 days before the event starts, but refunds or re-bookings are not available after this time, unless the event has been cancelled by weather.

If you need to contact us after you have purchased tickets, please use the contact organiser link in the email that contained your ticket information.

Wine, Cheese & Astronomy

Astronomy

Join us at our famed Tuesday evening special where you will enjoy an extended Night Sky show that includes a glass of wine (or beer, if you’re that way inclined!) and cheese platters.

Learn about the planets, stars and constellations visible in the night sky on the evening of your visit.

The show is perfect for anyone looking for something different to do for a date night (or mates night!) and for anyone who enjoys our most popular Night Sky show and wants to learn even more in a relaxed environment.

Wine and beer served to R18 only, ID required.

Please arrive at least 15 minutes early for shows. Late entry into the planetarium is not possible once the show has started.

Stargazing Lab

Astronomy

The first session starts before the sunset in order to explain very basic concepts about astronomy, telescopes, and photography. After that, you will have opportunities to observe the craters and mountains on the Moon, Jupiter’s Great Red Spot and the rings of Saturn. 
You will also have a chance to observe deep sky objects like star clusters, nebulae, and galaxies.

The sessions will target different objects and topics every day. Since these events are weather dependent, on occasions we may need to cancel the event at short notice. If this happens, you will receive an email (1h prior to the event) notifying you of cancellation and a full refund will be given.

Even though the sessions end late, these activities are family friendly and ideal for kids. You will have a nice opportunity to learn more about the solar system and the Universe, and also to motivate interest in Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) in young minds. Some telescopes and additional resources will be available for use. Including telescopes that can be operated by kids.

We will help you to identify bright stars and major constellations. During each observing session, we will teach participants to find those elusive patterns in the sky with a simple monthly star map and a green laser pointer that projects a visible beam into the sky. Just like at a planetarium but under the real night sky.

The Design of the International Space Station and Habitats on the Moon and Mars

This talk will review the architecture and engineering considerations in the design of the ISS and compare initial design plans with the current state of the international laboratory. Plans will be described for the next generation of orbital space habitats, as well as lunar and Mars habitats. We will also discuss ways New Zealand could be involved in this next phase of space exploration.

About the Speaker:
Eric Dahlstrom worked for NASA on the design of Space Station Freedom and the ISS in the 1980s and 1990s as part of the 'Tiger teams' at NASA Langley.
