Rosetta


rosetta

In March 2004 “Rosetta” spacecraft was launched from the Kourou Space Centre starting the mission to approach the 67P Churyumov-Gerasimenko comet and land the module “Philae” onto its surface.

Landing the space module on the comet’s surface is a highly difficult and challenging task which European Space Agency set and completed.  Rosetta mission is particularly long, but it started way before the spacecraft launch. It began in remote 1969 when young astronomers Klim Churyumov and Svetlana Gerasimenko first saw the comet as a little diffused spot on an astronegative.  

Today Klim Churyumov is one of the leading Ukrainian astronomers and the director of the Kiev planetarium, running research and science communication work.  Today Fulldome Film Society is proud to present the new fulldome film “Rosetta” created for all digital planetariums of the world.

Featuring Klim Churyumov the film tells us about the comet phenomenon, the discovery of the 67P comet, and the mission of the “Rosetta” probe and the landing module “Philae”. But above all the film speaks about the questions which humanity is seeking to be answered far away among the stars. “Rosetta” film is one of the best astronomic films for digital planetariums. It would be interesting for families as well as for students groups. The film is created with the newest computer graphics technology in 4K format and with surround sound.

Fulldome film “Rosetta” is a unique project for Fulldome Film Society. For the first time an independent production company is releasing a film under a limited free license.

Today any digital planetarium of the world can get a 1 year limited free renewable license by sending a request to Fulldome Film Society to contact@fulldomefilm.org.
