                                            Duration: 40



The show opens on the first era of space exploration in the late 1960s and early 1970s. Then the Google Lunar XPrize is introduced as the largest incentivized competition to date, designed to democratize space and create new opportunities for eventual human and robotic presence on the Moon. Immerse yourself in a race to return to the Moon 40 years after the historic Apollo landings. See how a competition among privately funded international teams is ushering in a new era of lunar exploration. Learn about the Moons resources and discover what humanitys future on the Moon might hold.

 GAIA: Journey to a illion Suns

                                         Planetarium Show
                                            Duration: 40


This new digital show of the Eugenides Planetarium was produced in cooperation with the European Space Agency (ESA) and planetariums all across Europe. "Journey to a billion Suns" tells the story of establishing the distance to the stars and our understanding of the Universe. The show aims at triggering the interest in science as an adventure, inviting the audience to a terrific journey through the Milky Way. It is the story of ESA's GAIA space mission that will map our Galaxy with extreme precision, never achieved before. With these measurements we will not only better understand the stars, but also discover countless new celestial objects, such as planets and asteroids, and maybe even the distribution of dark matter itself.

 The Earth and Me

                                         Planetarium Show
                                            Duration: 40



Over the last few decades scientific investigations have established that human activities have a negative impact on our planet's climate, biodiversity and ecosystems. Indeed, all available data clearly show a small but unmistakable rise in global temperatures, mostly caused by the burning of fossil fuels and the resulting greenhouse effect. The telltale signs of this global climate change, evident in the melting of icecaps and the frequency and violence of extreme weather phenomena, are a sober reminder that the ever increasing strain we put on the Earth's resources and natural systems, cannot be sustained for ever.

  Journey 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 couldnt be more wrong! Because, if we journey 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.

                                           Dome Film
                                              Duration: 40


Everest tells the inspirational true story of an international expedition to the highest peak on Earth, just days after the infamous 1996 tragedy in which eight climbers lost their lives in a deadly storm. Over creaking ice falls, across quaking chasms, up dangerous, towering cliffs, through a harrowing rescue of fellow mountaineers, and into the mystical danger zone of oxygen-thin altitude, the climbers and camera team maintain the spirit of determination, optimism and camaraderie that leads to miraculous achievements. Everest features the first giant screen images ever brought back from Mt. Everest. The film includes fascinating information about how this mountain was formed and continues to evolve, how high-altitude challenges a climbers physical and mental capabilities, and how Sherpa culture and tradition permeates the Mount Everest experience.

(Production: McGillivray Freeman Films, 1998.)

  The Living Planet

                                              Planetarium Show
                                              Duration: 40

What are the deeper causes behind the ceaseless displacement of the tectonic plates which reshapes constantly the surface of our planet? What is the natural mechanism behind the earthquakes and the volcanic eruptions? What is the mechanism that generates and affects our Earths climate and how is the observed climate changes related to the Greenhouse Effect? "The Living Planet", the Eugenides Planetariums latest digital show, explores the answers to these questions, as well as the various impact events and volcanic eruptions on the Earth and in other parts of the Solar system that lead to a better understanding of the reasons why Earth evolved so differently from its neighbouring planets Venus and Mars.

Planetarium Show
Duration: 40

2500 years after the pre-Socratic philosophers first started to look for rational explanations of the natural phenomena, humanitys scientific endeavor has led us to a fascinating conclusion: that every living organism, every planet and star, the Universe itself are all subject to the concept of Evolution. Eugenides Planetariums latest production Evolution attempts to capture this all-encompassing concept by inviting its audience on a fascinating journey. From ancient Miletus, where pre-Socratic philosopher Thales laid the foundations for the scientific investigation of the physical world, to the birth and the large scale expansion of the Universe, from stellar evolution to the geologic history of our planet and the emergence and evolution of life, from the rise and demise of some of the great civilizations of the past to our modern civilization and beyond, Evolution narrates the fascinating story of Change.
