MOREHEAD 3/03

When in Dome is the occasional musings of the award winning Morehead Planetarium and Science Center Production Department at the University of North Carolina – Chapel Hill. The three of us (and as many students as we can rope in) are usually hard at work producing fulldome digital planetarium shows including Earth, Moon and Sun, Magic Tree House: Space Mission and Grossology and You. We’re going to try to post our thoughts about what we’re working on and show production in general, the state of the fulldome community, and anything else that may pop in our heads.
