Help share the story of Georges Lemaitre

Note: For a captioned version of the video click this link.

In September 2022, Ohio State planetarium will be opening its doors again to the public and we are excited to share a brand new, never before seen planetarium show that we at Ohio State have been working to produce for many years. The new show is about a Catholic priest and astrophysicist named Georges Lemaitre and the scientific work he and Edwin Hubble did to convince Albert Einstein that the universe is expanding. Lemaitre's ideas also helped lay the groundwork for what we now call Big Bang theory. Until now there has never been a planetarium show about Lemaitre's contributions to this very important moment in the history of science. We hope you come visit Ohio State planetarium to see the new show!

We need your help because the new show relies on copyrighted content from an episode of Stephen Hawking's Universe which is owned by the BBC. We are trying to raise $5,000 to extend our license to use this content for public audiences at college planetariums in the US for another 3 years. Your donation will help us bring the show to college planetariums across the US!

A donation of $5 will allow us to extend the license for one more day. $35 will allow us to extend the license for one more week. $150 will allow us to extend the license for one more month. 100% of the money raised will go to pay these licensing fees.
