The Green Planet
2010
35

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.

Do We Drink Water from Comets?
2015
40

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.

Stories in the Stars
2013
27

Erica and Daniel are two Indigenous Australian teenagers from the city.  This weekend, instead of going to a party, they are at Lake Tyrrell in north-west Victoria which is their family’s country.  They spend the weekend walking around the lake with Grandma and Grandpa, hearing stories about the constellations in the night sky and learning about how this relates to their culture.

European night sky stories are familiar to many people.  However the stories indigenous to the southern skies are less well known.  Although different Australian Aboriginal groups have different astronomical traditions, there are some broad similarities between many traditions which are often very different to more familiar astronomy.

Fulldome show Stories in the Stars explores Indigenous Australian astronomy and how Indigenous culture describes constellations that cannot be seen from northern latitudes.  Even constellations that can be seen from Europe appear a different way in the sky in the southern hemisphere.
