About "The Worlds Within Star Wars":

Have you ever wondered if a lava planet was real?  Can life exist within an underground ocean?  Produced by and only showing at LASM, The Worlds Within Star Wars answers these questions and many more by taking audience members on a journey through the Star Wars' planets, moons, and star systems. 

This 40-minute, fulldome, original planetarium show follows the Star Wars story from the original trilogy through the prequels, and along the way examines the beloved fictional planets and how they relate to real-life planets and moons in our solar system, as well as recently discovered exoplanets and exomoons far beyond our own stellar neighborhood.
