Gather the family together to explore never seen before areas of space in this fascinating planetarium show at Newcastle’s Centre for Life. The Edge of Darkness features sensational scenes gathered from recent ground-breaking space missions. Narrated by Hayley Atwell (best known as Agent Carter from the Marvel Cinematic Universe), visitors will see close ups of Pluto and its moons, they’ll swoop through cliffs on Comet 67P and they’ll marvel the bright lights on dwarf planet Ceres. It’s certainly something worth talking about – but make sure you catch the exhibition soon before it ends on 9th February.
