Below is a list of full dome 360 degree films that we have available for presentation in our mobile planetarium. They can be shown as stand alone films or tailored to fit a specific presentation to suit your requirements.
Great Planet Adventures – 23 min
Off-World Thrills on Every Planet With muscles and bones made on Earth, you’ll be a super star on the solar system’s low-gravity worlds. Imagine zip lining on the scorched Mercury or snowmobiling when it really snows on Pluto. Bungee jumping into outer space from an asteroid is like low-g diving from the tallest cliff or rappelling into deepest canyon in the solar system. Without gravity’s strong pull, you can glide over the hydrocarbon lakes of Titan, jet-pack in a geyser’s spray on Triton, or even drive a monster truck along a steep lunar crater wall. The Great Planet Adventures brings you each of these incredible off-world adventures.
Back to the Moon – for good 23 min
The show opens with the first era of space exploration in the late 1960s and early 1970s. We see what that era of landers and orbiters taught us about our nearest neighbour including the discovery of the Moon’s origin, composition, structure and the accessibility of raw materials on its surface.
The Google Lunar XPRIZE is designed to democratize space and create new opportunities for eventual human and robotic presence on the Moon. We see the engineering and innovation steps taken by the internationally distributed teams competing to land a spacecraft on the Moon and vie for additional prizes. We highlight the human spirit of competition and collaboration as teams take on this audacious challenge. Who will win the $30 million Google Lunar XPRIZE? The audience is taken through a successful launch, landing and lunar surface travel. The show ends with a stunning glimpse of a plausible scenario for our future on the Moon.
We are Aliens – 24 min
Earth. It’s now a small world. The human race is connected better and faster than ever before but what about elsewhere?
Could we one day be part of a galactic community sharing our knowledge and ideas? Or is Earth the only planet with life?
We Are Aliens! takes you on an epic ride in the hunt for the evidence of alien life.
Solar Quest – 11 min
SOLAR QUEST is a planetarium short feature that demonstrates and provides an overview of the Sun – Earth environment. Detailed and high quality animations and videos demonstrate various solar phenomena such as fusion, light energy and solar surface features and phenomena. The show also discusses the impacts that space weather may have and how the Earth’s atmosphere and magnetic field protects all life on Earth. Highlighted in the show is the role of the Solar Dynamics Observatory (SDO) and how scientists have begun to use it as a way to help identify and predict severe space weather.
Cosmic Castaways – 18 min
There are places where the night sky has no constellations.
No Orion, no Big Dipper, nothing but a few lonely, far away stars and a few faint, ghostly patches of light. Most stars lie within the crowded boundaries of galaxies, travelling with their brothers and sisters in a vast galactic family. But some find themselves on their own, deep within voids between the galaxies. These are the cosmic castaways.
Solar System Adventure – 12 min
Take a closer look at the planets and other bodies that are the Earth’s neighbours in space. Starting with the Earth and other rocky planets, we then take a closer look at the gas giants, some of their interesting moons, and asteroids.
The Incredible Sun – 11 min
Every second the Sun emits a million times more energy than the world consumes every year. Where does such a huge amount of power come from? Discover our star through the breathtaking timelapses. Thanks to the real images taken by the Solar Dynamics Observatory and processed by advanced mathematical methods, you will experience the true nature of the Sun and find out that it is far from being as calm as it seems at first glance.
The Sun’s activity, pronounced by terrific solar flares, sunspots and coronal mass ejections, influences our planet, by producing impressive auroras but also by damaging distribution networks and communication satellites. Is it a threat to us, then?
Clockwork Skies – 5 mins
A great short introduction to the motion of the Earth in the Solar System. Suitable for KS1
