The Adler's new show running through April 2014 in the high-tech Grainger Theatre revolves around man's ongoing fascination with the cosmos. The theater's "immersive space environment" lets viewers experience the Crab Nebula, get up close to Orion the Hunter and witness a flurry of active star formations. Visitors can also get a look at a Hubble Extreme Deep Field image containing more than 5,500 galaxies.
