Reviews

The intro captures the viewers for a cosmic journey, beginning with a view of the night sky from the Earth beyond the orbit of the ISS into the cosmic expanse of the Milky Way. A narrator leads the viewers through this journey. A classic journey through the solar System… and beyond… is a standard program for planetariums, but it is not a bad idea to re-iterate such a journey every few years in order to present the most recent research and resulting knowledge. The successful use of the dome and the well-proportioned perspectives in “To Worlds Beyond” resulted in a positive effect. The animations of the Curiosity robot and the dust devil on Mars, or the atmosphere of Venus are memorable because of their immersive effect. The surface textures of the celestial bodies are strikingly detailed and rich in structure. This has obviously been painstakingly improved upon. The current findings of planetary missions are essentially touched upon without going into the a great deal of depth. While the music harmoniously accompanies the journey up until the middle of the film, it becomes dramatically overbearing towards the end and too loud with relation to the speaker. This is partially contrary to the content shown. But on a positive note the special sound effects at least in some places amplify the alien nature of the scenery. The light natured rhetoric or the irony is lost. All in all the show is a bit too long but nevertheless a worthwhile journey through the solar system and beyond. 11th FullDome Festival, May 18, 2017
