“Equipped with his five senses, Man explores the universe around him and calls the adventure Science.”—Edwin P. Hubble Space Opera is an Italian Production; it is the result of collaboration between “Timeline360” and the Planetarium of Milano. On the sound of an enchanting cosmic symphony, this brand new Italian production takes the viewer on a unique futuristic journey through time and space from Earth to the Moon, the Sun and throughout the planets of our Solar System. Along the way, the show narrates the history of the heavenly objects we encounter and the myths that were spawn around them. We learn interesting facts obtained through the many innovative instruments that Mankind has concocted in a lifetime of discovery. The show is available for a limited time at the BA Planetarium, in English and Italian.

This amazing new show takes us on a breathtaking expedition through the Solar System and into the realm of comets―billions upon billions of them. For us Earthlings, our voyage of space exploration has barely just begun. Fresh mysteries, old questions, new sights, new worlds… beckon us constantly. As long as curiosity remains in the human race, we will be drawn to explore, understand, and perhaps live on these New Horizons…

Using groundbreaking photographic techniques, the Human Body promises to amaze audiences with a firsthand look at some of the body’s simple biological processes, such as the creation of 200 billion red blood cells over one 24-hour period, the 30-40 yards of new hair we sprout each day, and the daily demise of 10,000 brain cells that will never be replaced! You will be enthralled by this extraordinary and insightful adventure that begins each morning from the moment we first open our eyes, as burning cells from the surface of our retinas reveal a fresh set of sensors, to the last rumblings of our evening meal as it is turned into the energy we will need to face tomorrow.

Our earth was born of fire. Today, more than four hundred active volcanoes shape life on the Pacific Rim; geologists call it “The Ring of Fire.” This show takes us on a unique journey to have just a glimpse of Creation. Creation did not happen just once. Creation continues. It is a beginning without end. The Earth is alive.

We are at the edge of a spiral galaxy … far from the galactic core... Our Earth is a small planet … its pole crowned with a circle of "Northern Lights"… The whole planet glows in the infrared warmth of a star we rarely think about… A star we call the Sun. Space has given us new eyes and SOHO shows us the Sun as we have never seen it before... Every sunrise brings hope… For some, it is the hope that we can learn to do what the humblest plant can do… Make clean and abundant energy directly from sunlight…

The Sky of Alexandria is the first Egyptian scientific planetarium show. It has been produced by the Arab Academy for Science and Technology responsible for the animated graphics and direction. The original idea and script were laid by the astronomers and specialists of the Bibliotheca Alexandrina Planetarium Science Center. The scientific content was revised by Dr. Farouk Elbaz. The show was executed and installed by a collaborative team from both the BA Planetarium Science Center and the Multi-Media Center at the Arab Academy for Science and Technology. The story of the Sky of Alexandria revolves around the evolution of Man’s vision of the sky in search for answers to its riddles and laws of motion across time.

Join Subrah, and her robot helper, on an unforgettable voyage of discovery as they unravel a cosmic riddle that points the way to planet Bekanal.

It is difficult to imagine the vastness of empty space. A hundred years ago, we thought that our Galaxy, the Milky Way, was the entire universe. Now we know that the universe is far, far bigger. So how big will big be … when future generations gaze up at the dark, starry night?

This is a fascinating journey from the realm of the mysterious to the realm of reality. The audience will eavesdrop on signals from space, delve into emerging solar systems and learn how scientists and amateur astronomers explain mysterious cosmic phenomena. The Search for Life in the Universe explores the chances life might exist elsewhere in the universe, based on what we know about how life began on Earth, and how we might be able to find it.

As light speeds across the light years, over the course of centuries, the primitives on Earth form cultures and civilizations … and begin to wonder about the universe surrounding them. In modern times, scientific study of space help the planet's current inhabitants to understand the properties of light, and the ways that understanding shapes further our knowledge of the universe.

From 1979 to 1989, the Voyager 1 and 2 missions explored the wonders of the outer Solar System. The Voyager Encounters is the definitive summary of results returned by the two spacecrafts, recapping all of Voyager's encounters with Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus and Neptune, in one convenient and thorough documentary. The show discusses the functions of Voyager's instrument packages; the highlights of each flyby; and compares and contrasts each of the planets atmospheres and magnetic fields, their moons and ring systems.

No world has fascinated us as much as our neighbor, Mars. Recent discoveries and probes have only heightened our curiosity about the Red Planet. Discover what makes the planet Mars so unique.
