Polaris, the space submarine (quiet)

A fun 360o fulldome film for all the family, with plenty of jokes for both adults and children.

Join Vladimir the polar bear and James the penguin as they try to work out why their homes have such long nights in winter. Vladimir's inventive genius and James' understanding of the scientific method eventually takes them beyond the Earth to study the planet as a whole, and to compare it to others in our solar system. The two, strangers at first, become firm friends along the way.

Younger children will love the characters and adventure while older children follow the science, and there are also some jokes for the adults (look out for some classic Sci-Fi film references).

Polaris, the space submarine and the mystery of the polar night has won the Audience Choice award at three different European planetarium festivals, and also Best Popular Science Fulldome Show. It is made by a French producer with an English soundtrack.

This 29-minute show is perfect for mixed age groups.
