If you remember the ESA Rosetta Mission and its historic landing of a probe on a comet, perhaps you remember that planetariums in Austria and Switzerland were working on a fulldome version of a cartoon series called "The Adventures of Rosetta & Philae."


Mark Horat from the Verkehrshaus Planetarium in Lucerne has announced that the fulldome work is completed, and Rosetta & Philae are available to visit domes around the world.

"Join Rosetta and her lander Philae on a wonderful journey to the comet Churyumov-Gerasimenko. They travelled for more than ten years and experienced lots of exciting things. Little Philae eventually managed to land on the comet and explore it more closely. Come along on the adventure and find out what secrets Philae and Rosetta were able to unveil in this new planetarium show."
