Deep in the ice at the heart of Antarctica, the biggest and strangest detector in the world waits for mysterious messengers from the cosmos. The detector is IceCube! The messengers are neutrinos–ghostly particles that give us tantalizing looks into world of exploding stars and black holes.
This show tells the incredible story of how an international team of scientists and engineers transformed one billion tons of Antarctic ice into a telescope. Building IceCube was a titanic endeavor driven by our human passion for discovery.
Your audiences will witness stunning views of the South Pole, captivating animations of the IceCube detectors capturing a neutrino collision–and eye-catching views of the cosmos. Chasing the Ghost Particle: From the South Pole to the Edge of the Universe will take you on a journey you will never forget.
A co-production of the Daniel M. Soref Planetarium at the Milwaukee Public Museum and the Wisconsin IceCube Particle Astrophysics Center (WIPAC) of the University of Wisconsin–Madison.

You are made of 70 trillion living cells. They work. They talk. They think.
They are what make you alive.
This is the story of the trillions of cells that form our bodies, from our beginnings as a single cell to the complexity of a whole body: it’s the story of who we are. Join Raj and Sooki on a totally ex-CELL-ent immersive journey. Get shrunk down by the Shrink-a-tron, go back in time with the Retroscope and see an exploded view of all the body systems courtesy of the Cell-o-tron.
Imagine a place where time stands still; where the universal order breaks down; where the unimaginable becomes reality. Welcome to the world of Black Holes.
Narrated by Academy Award winning actor Geoffrey Rush and presenting the latest scientific information, this new planetarium show brings to life all that is fascinating and extreme in the world of black holes. Witness what would happen if you got too close to one? What makes a black hole? How do we find them? Would you survive falling into one?
Discover what science has taught us about these most bizarre creations. Follow their story from an extraordinary idea of the late 18th century through to their unexpected detection almost 200 years later.
Black holes. No longer the stuff of science fiction, their discovery has been a triumph of modern science. An incredible journey from imagination to reality.

One of the most asked questions about the Universe is “How big is it?”
And that’s one of the hardest to answer.
BIG has been produced to tackle the question and does so by taking the audience on an immersive journey to the far reaches of the universe that we are currently able to observe. Along the way, the audience is introduced to the concept of the speed of light, and they meet a huge range of objects to spark their imagination.
Unlike any show you have seen before, BIG combines a light-hearted storytelling style with computer animation, stop-motion character animation (clay animation), laser graphics, and a surround sound musical score to bring a really big subject down to Earth.
Bella Gaia (Beautiful Earth) Successfully simulates space flight, is a ‘Living Atlas’ multimedia journey of our world, and expresses the deeply moving beauty of planet Earth as seen through the eyes of astronauts.Created by award winning director and classically trained violinist Kenji Williams, and in collaboration with NASA, Bella Gaia features live performances by Williams and world music artists against a large-screen backdrop of orbiting visualizations of Earth from space.
Inspired by astronauts who spoke of the life changing power of seeing the Earth from space, award winning filmmaker and composer Kenji Williams created Bella Gaia to simulate this transformative effect called the “Overview Effect”. Working closely with NASA’s scientific visualization studio, the award winning Bella Gaia successfully simulates space flight, taking the audience on a spectacular journey around planet Earth. With gripping NASA scientific visualizations, guided by the hypnotic, ecstatic music of Kenji Williams, Bella Gaia showcases a thought-provoking stream of crucial scientific data regarding our imperiled eco-systems while also celebrating the amazing cultural heritage of humanity.
A “Living Atlas” journey of our planet, Bella Gaia creates a direct experience and connection with the creative forces of Earth. Bella Gaia uses the media-rich languages of today to present audiences compelling visualizations of scientific data, natural systems and humanity’s impact on nature in a way that taps audience’s emotional intelligence and facilitates deeper cognitive understanding of today’s complex issues.
