One of Canada's great celestial bodies, the H. R. MacMillan Space Centre (HRMSC), is coming on Tuesday as a special guest of The Exploration Place.

The Vancouver-based facility has a travelling program that will touch down at Prince George's premier museum and science centre.

"Budding young astronomers and astronomy enthusiasts alike will get the opportunity to immerse themselves amongst the stars," said Trish Pattison, outreach programmer with the HRMSC.

The event is free of charge and is designed to promote interest in the STEAM subjects: science, technology, arts, engineering and math.

"The Space Centre is also setting up the star of their outreach program: their portable planetarium," said Pattison. "Event attendees can crawl inside this inflatable planetarium and go on a journey to the far corners of the Universe where they can see planets, constellations and other celestial bodies that are only a blur from here on Earth."
