The late American sci-fi writer Robert A. Heinlein perhaps summed up space best when he said, The Earth is just too small and fragile a basket for the human race to keep all its eggs in". Reclining in the chairs and looking up at the recreated night sky containing an infinite amount of exploding balls of gas, moons and planets kind of does your head in, but in an extremely enjoyable way. The customized kids' shows are great - here astronomy is explained to the little 'uns in fun, bite-sized increments.
