we are astronomers is a new 360° fulldome digital planetarium show describing what professional astronomers actually do during their working hours! "Today’s astronomer is not the lone observer of past centuries. We are Astronomers reveals the global collaboration, technology and dedication required to answer the unresolved questions of the Universe."
i'm thrilled to have been asked to participate in this project! you can view the film (and my cameo) at several locations around the UK starting 23 may, 2009. let us know what you think if you see it!
here is a beautiful scene of the very large telescope (VLT) in chile, that is included in the film. remember the film will be shown on a full 360°, so this flatscreen projection looks oddly circular!
here's the first trailer for the movie. the narrator of the film is the former doctor who, david tennant!
