Tycho goes to Mars

In our brand-new planetarium show, Tycho Goes to Mars, Tycho, our favourite cheeky dog with a knack for getting into trouble, is finally blasting off to discover the red planet, Mars!

Join Tycho on an adventure in what’s set to be 2021’s most exciting animated children’s film in a unique family cinema experience.

We’ll learn all about the major features of Mars, including the ancient volcano Olympus Mons and the canyons of the Valles Marineris.

Tycho is in search of water to fly his steam-powered space kennel back home. But how will he find water on Mars, when it looks so cold, dusty and dry?

Luckily, he discovers a new friend, Oppy, who is all too eager to help. Oppy – the NASA rover, Opportunity – has lots of experience exploring Mars and hunting for water. She is thrilled to share her knowledge of the red planet with a fellow space explorer.

Every planetarium show includes a discussion session on astronomy and a live presentation showing Tasmania's current night sky.
