Planetarium

In summer 2020 our ShowDome auditorium was transformed into a fully digital state-of-the-art 360° planetarium. Brand new software and projectors will now allow us to develop the highest quality, presenter-led content on a wide variety of STEM topics – accessing databases from the European Space Agency (ESA), the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) and the National Ocean and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA). Look out for these shows coming this winter.

In the meantime our current library of films is shown below

Now Showing in the ShowDome:

  • NEW: Capcom Go! The Apollo Story (12:00, 13:00, 14:30, 15:30)*

50 years after the first Moon Landing, this brand new film tells the story of the Apollo space programme, one of humankind's greatest achievements. 

 

  • Supervolcanoes (11:00, 11:30, 12:30, 14:00)*

Supervolcanoes is an immersive planetarium show that looks back at rare classes of eruptions that have marshaled the energy that lurks, like a sleeping dragon, beneath the surface of planet Earth. The program moves beyond Earth to explore the impact of giant volcanic eruptions around our solar system. Audiences will fly down to Neptune's frigid moon Triton, and onto the ultimate volcanic world: Jupiter's moon Io. On a visit to a legendary North American hot spot, Yellowstone National Park, the film asks: can a supervolcano erupt in our time?

  • We Are Stars (13:30, 15:00, 16:00, 17:00)*

What are we made of? Where did it all come from? Explore the secrets of our cosmic chemistry, our explosive origins and connect life on Earth to the evolution of the Universe.
