The sky’s not even the limit for wanderlusting explorers who visit the Discovery Centre. Brenna Hill, marketing and communications manager, says her favourite part of the centre is the dome theatre. “It’s just so inspiring and astounding, the space as a whole,” says Hill. From the incredibly knowledgeable presenters to educational videos, all visitors are sure to head home with a fun fact like this one: Jupiter has 53 named moons and another 26 awaiting official names. The four most well-known moons are Io, Europa, Ganymede and Callisto.
