Mueller Planetarium in the University of Nebraska State Museum's Morrill Hall has announced its updated fulldome schedule. The new schedule started Feb. 3.

The new schedule includes "Dark," a show exploring the nature of dark matter, a mysterious substance that makes up 80 percent of the mass of the universe. It also includes "Natural Selection," a show that introduces family audiences to the ideas of English naturalist Charles Darwin. Audiences experience the thrill of scientific discovery with Darwin as they go on a voyage aboard the H.M.S. Beagle and explore the beauty of nature on the Galapagos Islands.

The new schedule effective Feb. 3:

"Dark" — Saturdays and Sundays at 2 and 3 p.m.

"Natural Selection" — Thursdays at 7 p.m.

Showings of "Dark" will include updates on the current night sky and NASA's Mars Rover "Curiosity."

Planetarium tickets are $9 for adults (19 and older), $5.50 for children and $3 for UNL staff, faculty, and students with valid NU ID, and include museum admission. For more information, go to or call 402-472-2641.
