Science Centre - Explore New Horizons At The Revamped Omni-Theatre

May 2015

The Science Centre Singapore Omni-Theatre reopens on 30 May 2015. Digitally enhanced with the world's latest 8K digital fulldome system, it allows you, the theatre goer, to have a digitally immersive experience by traveling beyond physical boundaries to remote locations on Earth and the solar system in the comfort of your seat.

On Southeast Asia's largest seamless some screen, you can enjoy a selection of digital fulldome movies and "live" shows with topical real-time presentations conducted by knowledgeable science educators. Each show is introduced with high-resolution graphics, along with real-time images from the American Museum of Natural History and National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA).

With this new technology, science educators can now have full control over where they want to bring their audiences, what they want to show, and through this learning journey, introduce them to space science and exploration.

The host welcoming all guests to the revamped experience...

A chaotic cluster of green words - all the man-made satellites |
that are roaming round the earth at this very moment...

Watch the Earth's rotation on its axis with the orbiting satellites...

Move on to the Moon, Earth's very own satellite, including the "dark side" that faces space...

Singapore at night, one bright blob with smaller dots where HDB estates are located
and yellow light streamers for roads...

Seconds later, be zapped to the tallest peaks on Earth
and see Mount Everest in person at the Himalayas...


The hue from the "Red Planet" comes from "rusty" surface rich in iron oxide formed from surface iron reacting with oxygen in the air and liquid water from long ago to create a film of iron oxide.

Located along the equator of Mars, on the east side of the Tharsis Bulge, the Valles Marineris (Latin for Mariner Valleys) stretches for nearly a fifth of the planet’s circumference. At more than 4,000 km, 200 km wide and up to 10 km deep, the rift system is one of the largest canyons of the Solar System, even larger than Earth's Grand Canyon in the United States.


Jupiter is a gas giant planet. Its atmosphere is made up of mostly hydrogen gas and helium gas, just like the sun. The planet's surface is covered in thick red, brown, yellow and white clouds.

The Great Red Spot is a giant, spinning storm in Jupiter's atmosphere. It is like a hurricane on Earth, but it is much larger. Jupiter's Great Red Spot is more than twice the size of Earth! Winds inside this storm reach speeds of about 270 miles per hour. Unlike hurricanes and cyclones on Earth, which come and go in a matter of days, this iconic oval has endured for centuries.


Saturn is the sixth planet from the Sun and the second largest in the Solar System, after Jupiter. its rings are the most extensive planetary ring system of any planet in the Solar System. They consist of countless small particles, ranging in size from micrometres to metres, that orbit about Saturn. The ring particles are made almost entirely of water ice, with a trace component of rocky material.

From a different angle, the rings are hardly visible...


Neptune, another gas giant, is the eighth planet from the Sun and is the most distant planet from the Sun in our Solar System. The atmosphere of Neptune is made of hydrogen and helium, with some methane. The methane absorbs red light, which makes the planet appear a lovely blue. High, thin clouds drift in the upper atmosphere.

Seen along its orbital path around the Sun...

Beyond Our Solar System

There are other galaxies and globular clusters,
a spherical collection of stars that orbits a galactic core as a satellite...

The Milky Way is the galaxy that contains our Solar System. Its name "milky" is derived from its appearance as a dim glowing band arching across the night sky...

The Butterfly Cluster (also known as Messier 6 or NGC 6405) is a bright open star cluster of some 12 light-years across, located around 1,600 light-years away from Earth in the southern constellation of Scorpius (the Scorpion). Its name derives from the vague resemblance of its shape to a butterfly...

Digital Fulldome Movie

In Back To The Moon, a 40-minute Digital Fulldome Movie, teams around the world are competing for a chance to win the Google Lunar X Prize of $20 million, the largest incentivized prize in history In a renewed race to the moon. To qualify, teams must land a robotic spacecraft on the moon, navigate 300 metres over the lunar surface, and send videos, images and data back to Earth.

Tickets are priced at $14 for Digital Movies / Live Shows and $12 for IMAX movies. For more details, including the full list of movies and shows, check out the website for Science Centre Singapore's Omni-Theatre.
