Adler Planetarium

Welcome to the Universe


About the Show

From the surface of the Earth to a supercluster of galaxies a billion light-years away, Welcome to the Universe gives you a chance to explore space first hand. This 3D real-time digital simulation guided by a live presenter lets you experience cosmic destinations first-hand with incredible accuracy. Frequently updated with new scientific data, Welcome to the Universe gives you a chance to view Earth in a way that was previously only possible for astronauts, and experience the rest of the Universe in a way that was not possible - until now.
