the Rio Tinto Alcan Planetarium/ 
MONTREAL, April 5, 2013 /CNW Telbec/ - This morning, MONTRÉAL SPACE FOR LIFE 
is inviting media representatives to enjoy a breathtaking, moving experience 
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.
