Morehead has some new things on tap for this summer. They include "Dynamic Earth," a new fulldome planetarium show that "takes you deep under the ocean to learn how the sun's energy affects air and water currents," Morehead's website says.

A new exhibit called "A Sticky Situation" explores how UNC scientists are working to locate and remove coal tar deposits around the world.

And Morehead has a new Science LIVE! presentation called "All Systems Go," which takes a close look at the human body and how it functions.

Morehead Planetarium is on Franklin Street in Chapel Hill.
