Space Explorers – The ISS Experience, Episode 1
You think life in zero gravity would be easy and fun? Better think again. Because things can get terribly confusing when "up" and "down" aren't what they seem and you're floating instead of going from place to place. So your first few days in space could be a terribly awkward experience. The German astronaut Matthias Maurer has been on board the ISS on his “Cosmic Kiss” mission for a few weeks now and has certainly had his own experiences.
With "Space Explorers - The ISS Experience" you can now get an impression of life on board the space station. You will get to know the challenges that space travelers have to master. This special 360-degree experience received support from the representation of the Québec government in Germany and the Hamburg Senate.
The unique production was created with the expertise and groundbreaking technology of Montreal-based studio Felix & Paul, who were able to bring custom-made 360-degree cameras aboard the ISS with permission from NASA. The four-part epic, which accompanies eight astronauts on their life-changing mission, is arguably the most ambitious film project ever realized in space. Episode 1 entitled "Adapt" is about adapting to the unfamiliar conditions on board. How do space travelers manage to deal with weightlessness and spatial confinement?
With the real-time simulation techniques of the planetarium, we also find the current position of the space station above the earth and once again recognize the fragility of our planet Earth.
