After more than a year in the making, Clark Planetarium Productions presents its most innovative family program since “The Secret of the Cardboard Rocket”! The show is revolutionary on a number of fronts: 4k resolution that utilizes detailed assets to take full advantage of the 4k environment; A frame rate of 60 frames per second to provide smoother motion, sharper definition, and clearer colors. (The show is also available in 30 fps.)
So what's the theme? Imagine the ultimate space vacation!
Discover our solar system through a new set of eyes – a family from another star system seeking the perfect vacation spot. Fly over the surface of Pluto, our best known Dwarf Planet. Dive down the ice cliffs of Miranda. Sail through the rings of Saturn. Feel the lightning storms at Jupiter. And walk on the surface of Mars. Which destination would you choose? This is the solar system journey for space travelers of all ages.

UPDATE: The show was recently revised to slow down some of the more "kinetic" sections of the show. Children love the motions but some adults and teachers find them a little intense and so we adjusted a couple of the "faster" sequences!
