Climate change education the feature of new Planetarium show


Media release issued Tuesday 5 October 2021 

The Launceston Planetarium has launched a new show this week focussing on educating people about climate change and the causes behind it. 

Our Living Climate offers a spectacular 30-minute look into what is arguably the greatest challenge of our time. 

Planetarium astronomer Chris Arkless said Our Living Climate is a great way to learn about the impact of climate change and is suitable for all ages. 

"Throughout the 30-minute screening of Our Living Climate, we'll explore the effect that life in general, and humans in particular, have had in altering the climate." Mr Arkless said. 

"It's a fantastic way for all ages to learn about climate change and the factors contributing to it. 

"We're particularly happy to have Our Living Climate available in the final week of school holidays for families to enjoy. 

"To conclude each show, we'll explore what tonight's night sky will look like and what to look out for with the Planetarium's Zeiss star projector, which is always great fun."

Our Living Climate is now on show at the Launceston Planetarium, located at the Museum at Inveresk (2 Invermay Road, Launceston). For a full list of screening dates and times, or to book online, visit
