National Space Centre to Stream Free Planetarium Show via YouTube "We Are Stars"


The National Space Centre is giving families the chance to enjoy a film night with a difference.

The Leicester attraction will be streaming a planetarium show online for the first time ever, on Friday, April 24 - and you can watch for free.

We Are Stars will be available to view from 6pm, and will enable families, adults and children to explore the secrets of our cosmic chemistry, and our explosive origins.

Developed by NSC Creative, a team of animators based at the National Space Centre, We Are Stars has played in planetaria around the world.

However, this is the first time the show has been able to be seen outside the full dome and enjoyed, in full, in the home.

        It's heavy metals. There's a whole bunch of them which formed straight after the Big Bang singularity (but are no longer with us).

    Daughter Went to the Science Centre in Winchester England and watched this… later when to the Space Centre Leicester for a Star Wars day and as a change to the normal shows they showed this instead… then went to a Planetarium in Moscow and they showed this… finally the mobile planetarium came to her school and… yes… they showed this.

    4 visits to planetariums and the same show each time… I shall make sure she sees it a 5th time.

      Our kids just went to Sciencworks in Spotswood… It worked out cheaper.

        We were in the UK at the time so the flights to Oz would of made it prohibitively expensive and time consuming.
