15. AFFILIATE NEWS (HIGHLIGHTS, PROJECTS, INITIATIVES)

 

A) Collaborative shows.

Since the big project for the International Year of Astronomy 2009 “Evolution”, a production that is now available not only in Spanish planetariums, but also in some centers in Germany, and within the frame of the innitiative of the Spanish Ministery of Science promoting the Scientific Culture, the associates have been involved in several collaborative projects, as “Noche estrellada en el Museo” in 2011 and several other shows since.

 

2012: ENERGÍA PARA LA VIDA.

Now in production, Energy for Life is a full-dome dgital planetarium show, addressing the relationship of we humans and energy: energy needs, suntainability, global climate change, renovable energies... but with a cosmic look, in which Asatrophysics and Solar Physics become a part of the plot. Completely new 3D animations and original soundtrack as is usual in these shows. Energy... is a production of the Pamplona Planetarium, in collaboration with other centers, as in the former projects, and also partially funded by the Ministery of Science. Open since Fall 2012 with wide distribution in Spain. Available also in English.


2012-2013: LOSING THE DARK (Spanish version) Production and translation of the narration into Spanish of the International Dark Sky Association and International Planetarium Society planetarium show in fulldome produced by Loch Ness Production. Losing the Dark is a "public service announcement" planetarium show, a collaboration of Loch Ness Productions and the International Dark-Sky Association. It introduces and illustrates some of the issues regarding light pollution, and suggests three simple actions people can take to help mitigate it. The show gives planetarium professionals a tool to help educate the public about the problems of light pollution. Planetarians are uniquely positioned to teach audiences ways we can all work together to implement responsible use of lighting.

 

2012-2013: CÉLULAS (BACTERIA MUTANTE)

A school planetarium show for children K-8, that explores new languages in a non formal educative context including cartoon and theatrical techniques. The life of a “mutant cell”, as observed in a little planet by two aged stars shows processes that real life developes in our world. The show, collaboration between Museos Científicos Coruñeses, Parc Astronómic del Montsec and Planetario de Pamplona is partially funded by the Ministery of Economy through the Spanish Foundation for Science and Technology (FECYT). Will be presenten in October 2013.

 

2013-2014: DEEP SPACE

A full-dome show on astronomy and astrophysics as a collaborative effort lead by Planetario de Pamplona with Museos Científicos Coruñeses and Parc Astronòmic del Montsec, with public funding from the FECYT (Fundación Española para la Ciencia y la Tencología). Due to be presented in Fall 2014.
