Little Major Tom: Into the Unknown brings the beloved characters of Tom and Stella exclusively to fulldome theaters in this exciting tale set in the year 2053.

Teenaged friends Tom and Stella live, laugh and train at Space Base 1, honing their astronaut skills as they float above Earth. Stella is ready to dive into any challenge, while Tom is panicking at the thought of completing his first-ever spacewalk. But a massive hurricane is forming on Earth, and Tom must put aside his fears and accept a difficult space mission. If Tom and Stella fail, the consequences could be devastating for them — and for Earth.

This fantastic fulldome show weaves meticulously researched facts about climate change and our future in space with engaging characters, including an AI-powered robot cat nicknamed Pluty. Kids of all ages will relate to Tom and Stella as the characters come to terms with their dreams and disappointments, accept responsibilities and consequences, and become better friends and teammates. Little Major Tom incorporates themes of teamwork, resilience, problem-solving, environmental awareness, and the wonders of space exploration, while inspiring audiences to dream big and make a difference in the world.

Dr. Peter Popp of Reef Distribution and Softmachine and musician Peter Schilling, singer of the international hit song “Major Tom (Coming Home),” teamed up to create this crowd-pleasing show, which was inspired by the popular German children’s book series, Der kleine Major Tom, which Schilling co-created.
