TJC science center premieres new ‘Space Next’ dome show; open during spring break

Just in time for spring break, the Center for Earth & Space Science Education at TJC has a new dome show, “Space Next.”

Space Next celebrates the accomplishments of NASA—the unequaled achievements of the Apollo and Space Shuttle programs and so much more—but not as simple nostalgia.
From the earliest legends of humans taking flight to the latest advances in warp speed technology, Space Next traces our fascination with flying and our timeless desire to reach the stars. Along the way, the stories of the space race, lunar landing, and space shuttle program are clearly told, preparing the audience for the mind-blowing future that’s just beyond the horizon.
Space Next brings us up to speed on where we’ve been, where we are now, and boldly ventures beyond today to tell the story of where we are going; all in breathtaking, state of the art imagery and evocative sound design to transport audiences to the future.
Producer Luke Ployhar explained, “We worked with leading scientists and consultants from NASA and other institutions to create the visuals and story of Space Next. The film presents actual possibilities of what lies in the future of space development and exploration. The attention to detail of the visual effects are perfect for this topic on the Giant Screen.”
