“As real as it gets… without leaving Earth,” boasts the new “To Space and Back, “ the newest show coming to The Einstein Planetarium at the National Air and Space Museum after the unveiling of its million dollar renovation geared toward school aged children and families.
This 25 minute, G rated, exploration — shown at 6 times the resolution of HD — shows audiences how space exploration is shaping our world, impacting our daily lives as well as helping us to discover the unimaginable, through its unprecedented level of detail, clarity, contrast, brightness, and color saturation… as well as a new state of the art, immersive digital sound system.
To Space & Back, exhibited in 8K resolution and 60 frames per second, takes audiences on an incredible journey from the far reaches of our known universe to our own planet. Not only does it inspire with temptations of glimpsing farther than ever before, it also shows how technology developed for use in space has shaped our world — and continues to pave the way for the devices and apps we use every day, like GPS, satellites that track environmental changes, and heath monitors or other life saving devices.
Space sure looks great on the big screen.
