Show Descriptions

Take a lunar adventure with a curious stowaway cat. This program is a playful cartoon presentation about an inquisitive cat who takes a trip to the moon, observing his human family of enthusiastic sky watchers.

Climb aboard a magical cardboard rocket with two young adventurers and experience an up-close look at each of our solar system’s planets. Discover the secret to making this seemingly impossible trip, and gain a new sense of wonder about space along the way.

The film embarks on a journey on the trail of asteroids and comets, and shows technologies that allow scientists to detect asteroids before they reach Earth.

Featured show changes about every three days, and titles include Light Years From Andromeda, MarsQuest, MAGELLAN: Report From Venus and Oceans In Space. Presented by Loch Ness Productions.

The Google Lunar XPRIZE creates opportunities for eventual human and robotic presence on the moon. In Back to the Moon for Good, see the engineering and innovation steps taken by international teams competing to land a spacecraft on the moon. In Space Elevator: It's About Time, ride on the Arthur C. Clarke Space Elevator and look through the Einstein Time Telescope at the history of our universe.

Dynamic Earth explores Earth's global climate. This film follows a trail of energy that flows from the sun. Audiences will ride along on swirling ocean and wind currents, dive into the heart of a hurricane and fly into volcanoes. Ice Worlds explores icebergs in the Arctic, massive glaciers and the Antarctic wilderness. Learn how science discovers environmental conditions that affect our future on Earth.

From the outer reaches of space and time, through wondrous galaxies, to the majesty of our solar system, take a grand tour of the universe in Ultimate Universe. In Cosmic Safari, discover what creatures might look like on worlds quite different from our own on this search for life on undiscovered planets where scientific theory is transformed into exotic environs with fantastic fauna never before imagined.

Pink Floyd's rock album Dark Side of the Moon is presented in an immersive HD animation of color and surround-sound.
