Canceled: Faster Than Light

Thank you for your interest in visiting the Planetarium at A&M-Commerce.  Due to the COVID-19 issues, we are going to follow the university policies to cancel Friday night shows for the next few weeks.  Although the campus will remain open, group gatherings have been discouraged and all university classes are being facilitated online.  For the health and safety of all our visitors, we are going to close the Planetarium for public and school visits.

Faster Than Light explores the longstanding quest to develop spacecraft with enough power and speed to reach the stars. The film asks: What will it take to reach a newly discovered planet circling our Sun’s nearest neighbour, Proxima Centauri?

Based on real science and engineering, “Faster Than Light” takes audiences on a thrilling journey into the future, aboard laser-driven space sails, antimatter engines, and even warp drive – right out of science fiction.

Narrated by award winning actor and fan favorite Sean Bean, known as Ned Stark from HBO's Game of Thrones, and Boromir from the Lord of the Rings Trilogy.
