A civilization that rose to become the envy of the world, only to disappear … a mystery waiting to be unlocked by modern archaeologists, scientists and explorers.
Following an epic spree of religious building whose scale and ambition rivals the pyramids of Egypt, Angkor is the scene of one of the greatest vanishing acts of all time. The Khmer kingdom lasted from the 9th to the 15th centuries and at its height dominated a large swathe of South-East Asia from Myanmar to the west to Vietnam in the East. As many as one million people lived in Angkor, the capital, which sprawled across an area the size of New York’s five boroughs, making it the most extensive urban complex of the pre-industrial world. By the late 16th Century, the once resplendent capital of the empire, with its thousands of elaborate temples and religious monuments, was being overrun by the surrounding jungles.
Many experts have attempted to provide answers, and theories abound. 1300 carved inscriptions survive on temple doorjambs but the Khmer people of Angkor left not a single word explaining their kingdom’s collapse. This will be a visually stunning film … an epic adventure where science, mystery and ancient civilization intersect.

500 million years ago life left this blue womb and colonized the land, but we are still intricately linked to the ocean. Our climates, coastlines, ecosystems, and economies are tied to the perpetual movement of water between continents. The great ocean currents are the arteries and veins of Planet Earth! This is the story of one particularly fascinating flow – the East Australian Current, a massive oceanic river that stretches the length of Australia’s east coast.

In February 2013 an one man made the incredible – a space jump. He jumped from an altitude more then 120,000 feet, broke the speed of sound in freefall, and set several world records. Millions people all over the world watched his jump online.
After landing he said, “In my mind, I did that jump many times. I was ready to go.”
Do you want to feel what it is to jump from the edge of space?
Flight of Fancy will put you in this man’s place, you will see our planet from space with his eyes, get over the fear of a “death spin,” and experience amazing virtual G-forces!
The show combines the newest fulldome technology and excellent computer graphics. The 3D effect all around you will make you the hero of the show.
Flight of Fancy is not just a space jump; it is an extreme adventure within the human imagination. Many worlds that we create in our mind are passing by, one after another, with the speed of thought.
Take your own flight of fancy!

In the same way astronomers look up at the stars, trees reach up to the sky. They are the giants of plant evolution, reaching towards the light of the Sun.
Trees, forests and all the greenery of Planet Earth work together with the air, water, and sun to maintain all life on our planet. Therefore, the trees in the park or in the rainforest can tell us astounding things about our environment and the planetary cycles which shape them.
Follow us on an impressive journey into the Earth’s climate and the significance of the forest – between night and day, through the seasons and ice-ages.
The Green Planet – 3D is a fulldome show for planetariums and digital dome theatres.
Water is a basic condition for the emergence of life. This relatively simple compound, consisting of two hydrogen atoms and one oxygen atom, is found on Earth in gaseous, liquid, and solid forms.
Water accounts for most of Earth’s surface. Water makes up most of our body by weight. However, one fundamental question is left unanswered: where did all that water came from?
Perhaps, the answer is more complex than anyone might expect.
Join us on a captivating journey outside the confines of space and time. Along the way, we will show you well-known objects, e.g. Venus and the asteroids and comets in our solar system, as well as some lesser-known objects, such as our nearest stellar neighbours.
We will journey through the beauties of our galaxy, our galactic neighbours, and all the way to the very edge of the known universe.
To Space & Back takes audiences on an incredible journey from the far reaches of our known universe to our own planet. It is an extraordinary story of human ingenuity and incredible engineering, describing how the technology that transports us through space is paving the way for the devices and apps we use every day.

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, talk about their respective regions, and observe the stars together wondering why the night is so long at the poles of the Earth. Novice astronomers, they are trying to solve this mystery by reasoning and observation. Thanks to the rigor of James and the inventive genius of Vladimir, their scientific adventure leads 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 pedagogy and astonishing 3D effects. Addressing astronomical concepts such as the tilt of the Earth’s axis, planetary types, and ice in the solar system, the show also introduces key elements of the scientific method.
