Robo-kids Cy, Annie and their dog Armstrong get a lot more than they expected when their field trip to a space museum turns into an actual journey to the Sun, Earth and Moon! Humor, adventure and science combine to make this family-friendly show enjoyable for all ages.

Imagine the ultimate space vacation! For space travelers of all ages, this search for the best destinations in the galaxy takes us to Pluto, through the rings of Saturn, across the storms of Jupiter and beyond.

Escape gravity's pull and imagine zip lining on the scorched Mercury or snowmobiling when it really snows on Pluto. Bungee jumping into outer space from an asteroid, glide over the hydrocarbon lakes of Titan or jet-pack in a geyser's spray on Triton.

Light up the cold dark season with a warm and bright holiday show! Season of Light explores the reasons humans are so fascinated with lighting up our lives during the December holiday season. This very popular show is an exploration of the astronomical meanings behind seasonal traditions, including the “Star over Bethlehem”.

People always have gazed at the stars in wonder in a search for understanding, truth and insight. Take a journey with the Indigenous peoples of the western plains of Canada and share the wisdom conveyed by the stars.

Young marine scientist, Anna Cresswell, aboard mini-submersible Odyssea, embarks on a daring voyage into the labyrinth of Western Australia's iconic Ningaloo Reef. Her mission is to witness the annual, synchronized mass coral spawning. Along the way Anna navigates through a maze of spectacular coral structures, inhabited by an abundance of exotic marine life.

Touch the Stars centers on mankind's probes used in exploration of our solar system and the galaxy beyond. The film traces the path to space through the history of NASA's probes, orbiters, and landers, from the heart of our solar system to the surface of the other planets and moons, to the grand tour of the Voyager spacecraft through the outer planets and beyond.

The journey to reach the stars began with our earliest dreams of flying and led to landing on the moon. This new show offers a glimpse into tomorrow, and the possibilities of what is to come by way of private space developments and national space programs.
