The Children’s Museum was awarded a grant from NASA in 2009 for the Blue Planet
Red Planet Project. A portion of this funding was dedicated to helping the planetarium
acquire animation and video production software, as well as a small bank of rendering
computers. With this new equipment, the planetarium produced its own full length
planetarium show entitled, From the Blue Planet to the Red Planet.
From the Blue Planet to the Red Planet debuted in the Travelers Science Dome at the Gengras Planetarium on June 21, 2014. This exciting show is available for nationwide distribution.
This futuristic bedroom scene appears in From the Blue Planet
to the Red Planet.
This (From the Blue Planet to the Red Planet) scene depicts a capsule landing on the Martian surface. It is
transporting astronauts to the surface of Mars in the future.
