Team Mission

Produce short video features that inform and excite audiences while highlighting NASA missions. Distribute these to planetariums all over the US in 360 degree (full-dome, surround) format.

Our goals include that a large and diverse audience will increase their knowledge of how space and NASA affect their lives. We want to inspire students from a variety of backgrounds to recognize opportunities to pursue science as an interest or a career. We also want to inspire audiences to appreciate beauty and wonder of space and the discoveries presented.

What does your team hope to achieve?

Inspire a large and diverse group of students to think that science, particularly space and earth sciences, are exciting and a career possibility. Help them find the science exciting. Allow them to see role models to whom they can relate.
