Planetarium On The Go Greek version 


Telescopes are high technology scientific instruments which collect light from distant celestial objects. With these noble instruments humans managed to dive into the deep space and collect valuable scientific information about the formation, life and death of planets, stars and galaxies. All this knowledge helps us to understand how nature works in the large scale and determines our place in the magnificent Cosmos.

 

In this 30 min fulldome documentary, the Greek director Theofanis Matsopoulos, describes in a simple and understandable way, how telescopes work, their historical evolution and also travels  the audience to some of the most important observatories in the world. The  immersive experience of the documentary is  breathtaking , due to the extensive use  of real 4k fulldome video footage of the observatories and telescopes.

Farewell Cassini cover

After almost 20 years in space, Cassini spacecraft begins the final chapter of its remarkable story of exploration. Follow the fascinating Journey of Cassini through this 20 min planetarium documentary. Learn about Saturn’s environment and discover the unique satellites of Saturn.

Between April and September 2017, Cassini undertook a daring set of orbits that was, in many ways, like a whole new mission. Following a final close flyby of Saturn's moon Titan, Cassini leaped over the planet's icy rings and begun a series of dives between the planet and the rings. No other mission had ever explored this unique region. What we have learned from these final orbits will help to improve our understanding of how giant planets – and planetary systems everywhere – form and evolve. Then it entered into the Saturn's thick atmosphere where it was disintegrated.

The night sky, both beautiful and mysterious, has been the subject of campfire stories, ancient myths and awe for as long as there have been people. A desire to comprehend the Universe may well be humanity’s oldest shared intellectual experience. Yet only recently have we truly begun to grasp our place in the vast cosmos. To learn about this journey of celestial discovery, from the theories of the ancient Greek astronomers to today’s grandest telescopes, we invite you to experience From Earth to the Universe.

Directed by the young Greek filmmaker Theofanis N. Matsopoulos, and featuring a sweeping soundtrack from Norwegian composer Johan B. Monell, viewers can revel in the splendour of the various worlds in the Solar System and the ferocity of the scorching Sun. From Earth to the Universe then leaves our home to take the audience out to the colourful birthplaces and burial grounds of stars, and still further out, beyond the Milky Way, to the unimaginable immensity of myriad galaxies. Along the way, the audience will learn about the history of astronomy, the invention of the telescope, and today’s giant telescopes that allow us to continue to probe ever deeper into the Universe. It is no coincidence that the show aired in ten FullDome festivals, viewed in more than 700 planetariums worldwide and translated into 23 languages.

The images we see with our eyes do not reveal the whole reality. The light contains radiations invisible to us which are observed with special scientific instruments and telescopes. The show takes us in a journey through the most violent phenomena of the universe (neutron stars supernovas, black holes, active galaxies etc.) as they are observed with orbital telescopes specifically designed to record in X-rays and Gamma radiation.

The planetarium documentary “The Hot and Energetic Universe” presents with the use of Immersive Visualisations and real images the achievements of the modern astronomy, the most advanced terrestrial and orbital observatories, the basic principles electromagnetic radiation and the natural phenomena related to the High Energy Astrophysics.
