LaserFest at Tellus Science Museum

Family Science Night at Tellus Science Museum in Cartersville will light up with interactive laser exhibits, Mad Scientists and a unique planetarium laser show during LaserFest on Friday, November 2nd.

The exhibits — developed by Georgia Tech’s Research Institute (GTRI) — are shining examples of the global celebration of the laser’s 50th anniversary in 2010.

GTRI researchers have volunteered to share their knowledge about lasers and optical science with the young and the young at heart.  Tellus Mad Scientists will be performing optics and light demonstrations in the theater every hour.

This is a show you’ve got to SEE!

The planetarium will offer a sensational laser show combining laser art with pop music in exchange for a few measly dollars.

The observatory will be open for the evening.  If the skies are clear, you’ll be able to view Mars, the red planet; Alberio (a double star in the constellation Cygnus the Swan); and, the Andromeda Galaxy, one of our closest galaxies at 2.1 million light years away.
