Understanding Titan


First Posted: 1/15/2009

LUMBERTON — The Robeson Planetarium and Science Center is presenting anew program, “Mission to Understand Titan: Cassini,” at 11 a.m. and 1 p.m. on Saturday.
Find out what NASA is doing to update us on the mystery moon, Titan.
“Titan, Saturn’s largest moon, is also the largest tract of unexplored real estate in the solar system,” said Ken Brandt, planetarium director.
Here’s an added bonus: What we do know about Titan is that it is more like Earth than any other spot in our Solar System.
“As if this weren’t enough, we will also celebrate World Space Week,” Brandt said.
The program includes gazing at the stars and planets and meteors of the Autumn night sky. And best of all, said Brandt, this is being done under the 30 foot dome of the Robeson Planetarium.
The planetarium is at the intersection of N.C. 72 and 711.
Admission is $3 for adults and $2 for 18 and younger. Admission is free for students and staff of the Public Schools of Robeson County.
Seating is limited to 67 per showing. Groups of 10 or more are encouraged to make reservations in advance. For reservations and more information, contact Brandt at (910) 735-2147, or e-mail [email protected], or visit the planetarium Web site at http://www.robesonsky.com.
