To Space and Back

Get ready to go to space and back without leaving Indiana. This giant screen film presented with support from the Indiana Space Grant Consortium visually takes audiences to space and back, flying from beyond our galaxy to landmarks in some of the world’s most recognizable cities. Narrated by host of the BBC’s Top Gear, James May, this show examines how we perceive our planet and how information gathered from space has influenced culture, while helping to shape many products and services we use every day. To Space and Back is unique to the world of full-dome movies because it depicts hyper-real, scientific visualizations in acute detail and clarity without any noticeable picture stutter or motion blur. Presented. Wednesdays, Saturdays and Sundays at 3 p.m. through February 27, 2016 in the Museum’s Koch Immersive Theater (planetarium). Theater admission is $5.


Saturday, December 5, 2015

The Koch Immersive Theater will host acclaimed nature photography, Al Perry for a full-dome illustrated program. Fisheye lens stills and time-lapse photography of the Aurora Borealis will be featured on the Koch Immersive Theater’s dome. The images were taken during a 2013 trip the photographer made to Alaska. During the program, Perry will speak about his trek, the behind the scenes technical requirements for obtaining high quality nighttime photography, and answer questions from the audience. Talk gets underway at 7 p.m. CST. Admission-Free.
