In addition to Dynamic Earth which we started showing in March we have three other new fulldome shows this spring. Check Out the Shows page for more information!
Starting March 22nd!
The award-winning Dynamic Earth explores the inner workings of Earth’s great life support system: the global climate. With visualizations based on satellite monitoring data and advanced supercomputer simulations, this cutting-edge production follows a trail of energy that flows from the Sun into the interlocking systems that shape our climate: the atmosphere, oceans, and the biosphere. Audiences will ride along on swirling ocean and wind currents, dive into the heart of a monster hurricane, come face-to-face with sharks and gigantic whales, and fly into roiling volcanoes.
Dynamic Earth is the result of a two-year long collaboration between Spitz Creative Media, the Advanced Visualization Lab at the National Center for Supercomputing Applications at the University of Illinois, NASA’s Scientific Visualization Studio, and Thomas Lucas Productions, Inc., in association with the Denver Museum of Nature & Science and NASA Earth Science. Narrated by Liam Neeson.
Join us on February 11th from 9:30 – 10:30 am to watch the 8th Landsat satellite launch!
- Learn about Landsat!
- Watch the Launch live on the Dome!
- See some of Landsat’s “Greatest Hits”
This event is FREE and open to anyone!
What is Landsat?
The Landsat Program is a series of Earth-observing satellite missions jointly managed by NASA and the USGS. Landsat satellites have been consistently gathering data about our planet since 1972. They continue to improve and expand this unparalleled record of Earth’s changing landscapes for the benefit of all. The Landsat Data Continuity Mission (LDCM) will become the 8th satellite in the Landsat series and is launching from Vandenberg Air Force Base, California on February 11th 2013.
