MONTREAL, April 5, 2013 /CNW Telbec/ - This morning, MONTRÉAL SPACE FOR LIFE

with the very first visitors of the Rio Tinto Alcan Planetarium. The visit
kicks off with the immersive show Continuum, an odyssey through the beauty and
forces of space, created by Montréal artists Michel Lemieux and Victor Pilon.
Next, in the Milky Way theatre, a scientific interpreter gives visitors a
"guided tour of the Universe" thanks to a projector on the cutting edge of
technology. Finally, the fun and interactive exhibition Exo: Our Search for
Life in the Universe offers a wide range of answers to the question: Does life
exist beyond Earth? and reveals a wonderful collection of some
300meteorites, some of which come from the Moon and Mars.
