The Mission
Duration: 25 Minutes

Suitable for children starting from 4 years old and above

The show tackles the controversy among astronomers concerning whether to classify Pluto as a planet or not. The show has been designed specifically for children to illustrate the idea and present the scientists’ views about this scientific issue.

The show introduces two fictional characters, the comets Atom and Hoor, in a fun and exciting plot. Atom and Hoor work as reporters in the Solar System; they stop by each planet to collect information about Pluto. The production team’s idea was that the dialogue will be conveyed by the planets and the Sun, so that the interesting scientific information will be delivered in a simple way through amazing images and dazzling audio and visual special effects under the Planetarium’s dome.
