the scoop:

Every year the Griffith Observatory breaks out this special program for school holidays. Let’s Make a Comet is a 25-minute demonstration program that mixes common household ingredients with dry ice to make a small comet that’s just like the real thing. The program explores the nature of water in all its forms – solid, liquid, and gas – and discusses why water is so important to life on Earth. Recent images and discoveries from NASA missions reveal where we might find water – and possibly life – on other worlds in our solar system. It’s fascinating science, and it’s also lots of fun!

Shows are Tuesday-Friday at 2 p.m. & 4 p.m. and weekends at 1 p.m. & 3 p.m.
