Moonbase One is our latest fulldome show.
The Moon has always captivated humanity, inspiring us to leave the world behind and venture into space. Come along on an amazing adventure as we strive to understand our magnificent neighbour, The Moon.
Taking place across the night of a full moon, we join a Virtual Reality games developer as she struggles to work out what is wrong with her new game. The game is set on the Moon and is due for launch very soon. But… there’s a problem. As the game is all based on real science, could the bug be something to do with the phases of the Moon or how it was formed?
The show features stunning visualisations of the Moon’s violent formation, captures the achievements of lunar exploration, and demystifies natural phenomena such as eclipses and the changing phases of the Moon.
Our school planetarium show includes a guided ‘What’s in the sky tonight’ presentation and a Solar System walkthrough covering relevant aspects of the NSW syllabus.
