Capturing The Starlight: The Magnificent Telescopes

Telescopes are high technology scientific instruments which collect light from distant celestial objects. With these noble instruments humans managed to dive into the deep space and collect valuable scientific information about the formation, life and death of planets, stars and galaxies. All this knowledge helps us to understand how nature works in the large scale and determines our place in the magnificent Cosmos.

In this 30 min fulldome documentary, the Greek director Theofanis Matsopoulos, describes in a simple and understandable way, how telescopes work, their historical evolution and also travels  the audience to some of the most important observatories in the world. The  immersive experience of the documentary is  breathtaking , due to the extensive use  of real 4k fulldome video footage of the observatories and telescopes.
