Glasgow life

Scottish Power Space Theatre, Glasgow Science Centre, www.gsc.org.uk

Planets schmanets. Who’s interested and Patrick Moore? Well, as of now, I Glasgow Science Centre’s newly ope

Located on the first floor of the Sci auditorium seats up to 120 people in with projections onto the huge dome

in the solar system other than geeks am, because I have just visited

ned Space Theatre.

ence Mail, the darkened, circular reclined chairs and entertains you

d ceiling of the night sky, star

constellations and the milky way. You hear about their history, positioning and how to identify them, but it is not until they are speeded up that you

want to stop the world for a minute a

nd get off. Once you’ve found your

space legs again it is time for part two and the Oasis In Space film.

This explains the solar system, the

planets and how they were created.

Like the stars they are projected onto the ceiling creating a feeling of

travelling at great speeds through sp

ace and occasionally ducking out of

the way when a planet gets too close. Each planet is examined from its

position to its make up and by the en

d of it you’ve seen the oceans filling

on a barren Earth, landed in a crater of the moon, fought your way through the clouds of Venus and had Uranus fly past your ear.

Even if you’ve never been intereste you’ve been amazed by the imagery,

d in the planets or the stars, once you will certainly come out knowing a

hell of a lot more than you did when you went in. (Jane Hamilton)
