Indian River State College’s Hallstrom Planetarium will be presenting "Space Songs," this weekend. It’s kind of like some weird blend of planetarium sky show and karaoke. You’ll hear such classic songs as, the “Black Hole Hokey-Pokey”, “Tumbling Asteroids,” “Moon Rovers,” “There Are Plenty of Stars,” and the ever-popular, “What is Gravity?” And just so I don’t have all the fun, the audience will be invited to sing along too, as we project the words up on the planetarium dome. “Space Songs” is highly recommended for families with kids ages four and older.

The French science fiction writer Jules Verne was born on February 8th, 1828. He wrote of journeying to the earth’s center, and of circumnavigating the world in a submarine; and he also wrote, "From the Earth to the Moon," all about an "impossible" voyage of a three-man "space capsule" to our lunar neighbor. In his novel Verne envisioned the launch taking place in Florida.  After rounding the moon the space travelers splashed down safely in the Pacific Ocean, where a ship picked them up - all this a hundred years before we actually went there.

Clyde Tombaugh was born on February 4th, 1906. In 1930, when he was just 24 years old, he discovered a planet out beyond Neptune, dubbed Planet X. He found it on one of thousands of photographs of starfields, in Gemini the Twins. This constellation is visible in the east after sunset tonight, but Planet X has since wandered off into the other half of the sky, and can now be found in the constellation Sagittarius.
