  The Future in Space

                                           Planetarium Show
                                              Duration: 38´

 

The deeper we aim in Space, the greater are the challenges and the dangers we will face. “The Future in Space”, the new digital show of the Eugenides Planetarium, after a short introduction of the massive effort to “conquer” the Moon, attempts to answer certain intriguing questions related to the future of Space exploration. Will we ever construct bases on the Moon and Mars? How close is the first manned mission to the red planet? Will we ever escape the confines of our Solar system, or will interstellar travel remain in the realm of science fiction forever?

  Polaris. The Space Submarine and the Mystery of the Polar Night

                                           Planetarium Show
                                              Duration: 30´

 

James, a traveling penguin from the South Pole, and Vladimir, a funny bear from the North Pole, meet on the Arctic sea ice.They become friends, observe the stars together, wondering why the night is so long at the poles of the Earth. As novice astronomers, they are trying to solve this mystery and their scientific adventures lead them to build an observatory and then an improvised spaceship. During a trip around the Earth, extended to Mars and Saturn, they get their answer and discover that the planets have similarities but also differences. Polaris is a playful story combining knowledge and astonishing graphic effects. Addressing astronomical concepts, the show also introduces key elements of the scientific method!

Vagabonds in the Solar System

                                            Planetarium Show
                                               Duration: 40´

                                           

 

The digital show “Vagabonds in the Solar System” invites you on a fascinating journey to the asteroids and comets of our solar system. From the Asteroid Belt to the Kuiper Belt, astronomers have launched several space missions for the exploration of these celestial objects, in an effort to answer important questions, related to the birth of the Solar system, the origin of Earth’s water and the presence of the first complex organic molecules, that proved so crucial to the emergence of life on our planet. Equally important, astronomers study these objects trying to figure our possible ways to deflect potentially dangerous impact events in the future.

  Journey To Space

                                           Dome Film
                                              Duration: 45´

 

“Journey To Space” is a Large Format Film that puts into historical context the magnificent contributions made by the Space Shuttle program and its intrepid space pioneers. It uses the most spectacular space footage – including unique views of Earth and operations in space – such as deploying and repairing the Hubble Space Telescope. It then goes on to show how the Shuttle launched and assembled the International Space Station (ISS). Together, these programs have taught us how to live, build and conduct science in space. The ISS will continue operating in space until 2024, and the film shows how it is building a foundation for the next giant leaps into space.
“Journey to Space” will both inspire a new generation of young people to dream of new horizons in space, and engender a new appreciation for the accomplishments of the Space Shuttle Program among an older generation who came to take it for granted.

  Space Stormsand the Polar Aurora

                                           Planetarium Show
                                              Duration: 40´

 

The Eugenides Planetarium digital fulldome show «Space Storms and the Polar Aurora» invites you on a fascinating journey to witness the most impressive and violent weather phenomena in the Solar system. From the winds on Neptune, blowing at 2,000 km/h, to the mighty hurricane on Jupiter that could swallow at least two planets the size of Earth, this show will remind us that we are indeed lucky to live on Earth! Solar storms, on the other hand, can short-circuit our telecommunication satellites and cause widespread electrical power blackouts. At the same time, however, interacting with Earth’s magnetic field, they help create perhaps the most visually stunning natural phenomenon: the Polar Aurora.

  Life in the Universe

                                           Planetarium Show
                                              Duration: 40´

 

The digital show “Life in the Universe” invites you on a fascinating search for life beyond Earth. Starting with the origin and evolution of life on our planet, the show focuses on the planets and the moons of our Solar system that are more likely to host microbial life, as well as to the key methods used by astronomers for the detection and study of an exoplanet. What might exist in the billions of stars in the billions of galaxies beyond?

  Mysteries of the Unseen World

                                           Dome Film
                                              Duration: 40´

 

The film will transport audiences to see things that are beyond their normal vision, yet literally right in front of their eyes, secreted away in different dimensions of time and scale. Viewers will experience events that unfold too slowly for human perception; They will "see" the beauty, drama, and even humor of phenomena of that occur in the flash of a microsecond; They will enter the microscopic world that was once reserved only for scientists. They will begin to understand that what we actually see is only a fraction of what there is TO see on this Earth.
Visually stunning and rooted in cutting-edge research, National Geographic’s “Mysteries of the Unseen World” will leave audiences in complete thrall as they begin to understand the enormity of the world they can't see, a world that exists in the air they breathe, on their own bodies, and in all of the events that occur around them minute-by-minute, and nanosecond-by-nanosecond. And with this understanding comes a new appreciation of the wonder and possibilities of science.

Messenger from the Universe

                                           Planetarium Show
                                              Duration: 40´

 

The New Digital Planetarium’s production “Messenger from the Universe” invites you on a fascinating journey of discovery about light. Visible light is only a tiny part of the electromagnetic radiation emitted by celestial objects. When, however, we started building telescopes that could “see” in other wavelengths as well, our knowledge of the Universe expanded tremendously. From the great observatories in the Chilean desert of Atacama to the Hubble space telescope, and from the exploration of the Solar system to our communication satellites, this show highlights the importance of light in astronomy research, as well as how Space exploration and scientific research in general benefit society at large.

The Christmas Star

 

 

 

 

  Digital Show
Duration: 40´

 Looking back over the centuries since the birth of Christ in the humble manger in Bethlehem, one cannot help but feel an immense admiration for the deep and defining effect that his birth had on the world. This birth was made known to the poor shepherds by a "multitude of heavenly bodies" and to the people of Israel by the arrival of the three Kings from the East. Guided by the light of the "star from the East," they crossed deserts and mountains to worship this "unknown child." But what was that light that led them away from their homeland? What kind of star was it that guided them to the place where the Child of Bethlehem lay swaddled? What was that mysterious and wondrous star whose radiant light has illuminated and inspired humanity for more than 2000 years?

  Pathway to the Stars

                                         Planetarium Show
                                            Duration: 40´

 

 

Gazing at the stars in our night sky we may be tempted to think that stars live forever and that their lives are peaceful and quiet. We couldn’t be more wrong! Because, if we reach to the stars in our Galaxy, we will not discover so much a serene and unaltered world, but rather the often violent natural processes of a perpetual genesis and destruction. Indeed, thanks to our scientific theories, which are safely grounded on astronomical observation, thanks to the penetrating gaze of our terrestrial and space telescopes, the Milky Way and its innumerable amazing and strange natural objects are revealed in all their glory.
