Adler

Sandra Bullock and George Clooney have nothing on you. Leave your gravity behind: you're about to take off on a trip to space like you've never experienced before. You can travel to space all summer long and lift off is right here in Chicago at the Adler Planetarium with Destination Solar System, the first-ever simulated immersive tour of the Solar System.

Destination Solar System will launch May 16 from the Adler Planetarium's Grainger Sky Theater, and all are invited aboard. This one-of-a-kind "space-cation" takes space explorers from one end of the solar system to the other in just 30 minutes-travelling from the hottest hot spots to the coldest depths-all without leaving your seat.  

Picture this: It's the year 2096, and space tourism is available to everyone. Space Express Tours, the first travel company in space, offers a variety of adventures, including its most popular, Destination Solar System. Departing from the Grainger Sky Theater, this tour takes place on board the fastest ship in the Space Express fleet and the only vehicle equipped with Space JumpÔ technology.

Through Destination Solar System, passengers can travel hundreds of millions of miles in just seconds on an adventure-filled tour led by Jesse, an enthusiastic, knowledgeable yet "green" tour guide, and MAX, a highly advanced, fully integrated onboard computer.

Destination Solar System tours will launch daily from the Grainger Sky Theater starting May 16, and get ready to explore space as if you were really there, the high-definition screen resolution presents a level of realism surpassed only by space travel itself.
