For another year Astronomical Centre Rijeka prepared a special program during a winter school break.
All students, from rom December 27, 2017, to January 12, 2018, from Tuesday to Friday at 5 pm, can watch a film SEEING! A photon's journey across space, time and mind.
The mention film is the newest film at the digital planetarium, which uses hemispheric animations and video to teach how human vision works. Imagery from all over the world including humanity, landscapes, skyscapes, wildlife and of space are the backdrop for photo-realistic animations to create the story of a photon’s journey from the belly of a star, across the galaxy, to a young stargazer’s eye.
The photon’s journey is completed when it’s energy is converted into an electro-chemical impulse that then travels the neuro pathways of the brain and the various centers that create the image the mind sees.
The film is produced by Kris Koenig and Robin Sip.
