A learning adventure of a father and his teenage daughter Lucy, who share a fascination for all things that fly. You’ll travel back in time to meet the pterosaurs and the ancestors of modern-day birds: the feathered dinosaurs. Lucy and her father navigate from continent to continent, looking for clues about the origins of flight. When time runs out they experience first-hand the cataclysmic “last day” of the dinosaurs. Science content includes topics such as continental drift, proper motion of stars, asteroids and impacts, extinctions and the convergent development of flight among species.
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.
Discover the mystery of flight with Leonardo da Vinci, Montgolfier brothers, Wright brothers and other inventors. Experience the adventure and find out how this immense and challenging dream for which mankind has strived since the beginning of history came true.
Dream to Fly is a poetic story about the history of aviation. The aim of the film is to present the development of aviation through the ages in an interesting an innovative way. It presents the milestones on our route to conquering the skies – both in terms of technological breakthroughs, as well as our perceptions on flying itself.
Rich fulldome visuals, beautiful music composed for the show and a poetic narration makes this show an exceptional artwork. The message to the viewers is to be open to new ideas and to pursue our dreams.
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.

Explore presents a broad selection of science topics in a modern and accessible way in a story that revolves around the ambition to colonize Mars — a topic at the forefront of current trends in space adventure films for the giant screen. The film does not just explain scientific facts, such as the geo- vs helio-centric model or retrograde motion of planets. By closely examining the example of Johannes Kepler and his three laws of planetary motions, Explore also shows how the achievements of individuals can change the world, and how much we all benefit from them.
High quality visuals, custom composed music, and professional narration all serve a single purpose: to enhance the audience’s immersive experience.

They are based on whole new technologies designed to achieve ultra-high speeds, using exotic next generation rocket fuels and breakthrough concepts in physics. How far can our technology take us?
Fermentation is the theme of this work of dome art, produced with the help of choreographers and contemporary dancers. The phenomenon of fermentation is one in which tiny microorganisms, invisible to the naked eye, enable life to flower its hidden potential after death. This work abstracts this invisible phenomenon through dance, and expresses the creativity and energy that lies beyond death. If the living body of a dancer represents ‘life,’ the body of the dancer seen on film embodies ‘death.’ The body of the dancer, appearing amid the darkness of the dome, evokes not only death but also what lies beyond: the birth of a new life.
