Secret of the Cardboard Rocket

Secret of the Cardboard Rocket

Blast off with two children as they use the power of their imaginations and the knowledge of a talking astronomy book to explore the planets of the solar system. Visit each planet in turn (including a certain well-known dwarf planet) to get a close-up look at their surfaces and learn more about their environments.Though the show is aimed primarily for children pre-K to early middle school level, full-dome video effects make this an exhilarating educational ride for all ages. Topics treated include the nature of the Sun, the inner planets, the gas giants, Pluto, temperature and pressure, and asteroids. This show is available in 30 minute or 40 minute versions, with the addition of a 10 minute live star talk. Spanish-language versions of this show are available as well.
