“We Are Astronomers” trailer featuring David Tennant.

This looks like it would be wicked cool to see. Not the least because it’s being narrated by David Tennant:

Do you know what an astronomer does? Today’s astronomer is not the lone observer of past centuries. We are Astronomers reveals the global collaboration, technology and dedication required to answer the unresolved questions of the Universe.

We are Astronomers is an exciting new 360° Fulldome digital planetarium show launching 23 May 2009 across the UK. The show is being produced by NSC Creative with input from UK astronomers.

The project is a collaboration between Armagh Planetarium, Centre For Life, INTECH Science Centre & Planetarium, National Space Centre, Our Dynamic Earth, Royal Observatory Greenwich, Spaceport with funding from the Science and Technology Facilities Council.

Man I hope this becomes available for planetariums here in the States to license. I would absolutely love to have a chance to see this. It’s been awhile since I last visited a planetarium and this would be an excellent reason to go.
