New Horizons for a Little Planet
New Horizons for a Little Planet is a 6-min show for planetariums and digital dome theatres. Info, trailer & full preview available.
This show is a lighthearted introduction to NASA’s New Horizons mission to Pluto and the Kuiper Belt.
Launched in 2006, the New Horizons spacecraft is scheduled to fly by Pluto and its moons in July of 2015. The purpose of the program is to introduce planetarium visitors to the mission prior to its arrival at Pluto.
After it encounters Pluto, New Horizons will continue on through the Kuiper Belt and the mission will likely be extended. A smaller, more primitive Kuiper Belt Object will then be targeted for a rendezvous in 2018 or 2019. These encounters promise us unprecedented close up views of these distant worlds and the information gathered by New Horizons will provide valuable insight into the formation of our solar system and its planets.
This is a free fulldome film produced by Hartnell College Planetarium, and distributed by Audio Visual Imagineering. The show comes with a Resource Package which include animations, artist renderings, education material, info and handouts.
