TWO SMALL PIECES OF GLASS tells the story of the invention of the telescope in the early 1600s and how astronomers have used telescopes from Galileo to the modern day. This full dome video show finishes by looking ahead to possible giant telescopes of the futures.

TWO SMALL PIECES OF GLASS will be followed by CHASHING THE GHOST PARTICLE, which tells the story of a unique astronomical observatory, IceCube, located at the South Pole. See how IceCube was built and how it searches for elusive neutrinos. These low mass, hard to detect particles help astronomers unlock many of the mysteries of the cosmos.

Stargazing will follow the show if skies are clear.
