In ancient Greek the word planet means “wanderer.”
The experience begins as you hover above the thin blue line of Earth’s atmosphere. Etches of Earth’s surface are visible through glimpses of sunlight. Suspended in darkness, we float amongst the stars. As the sun fades, the wanderers reveal themselves as glowing points of light in the far off cosmic dark. Fixing your gaze on one of the planets you are transported to experience a glimpse of Jupiter, Venus, Mercury, Mars, or Saturn, the original wanderers of space and time. You encounter an interactive musical journey as you build your own chorus of the cosmos.
You suddenly become Voyager 1 catapulting through the cosmos as you relive the journey to capture the iconic image of our Pale Blue Dot, 3.7 billion miles away. You interact with the Golden Record and discover messages from Earth. You uncover humanities message to other worlds immersing yourself in the sounds of “hello” in hundreds of languages, pictures of humans, music, and the sound of a heartbeat. The pounding of a human heart becomes like the beat of a drum propelling you deeper into the stars. As you speed by the Sun at 40,000 miles an hour you are suddenly overcome by an urgent message from Earth. You must turn your cameras around and take one last glance homeward.
You are a Martian colonizing the outer comets of the Oort Cloud. You are at the frontiers of another solar system as you stumble upon a new category of wonders. Discovering other worlds unifies humanity and returns us to our beginnings. This is a multiplayer experience where you must work with other Martians to find resources for survival and create a new home. As you explore the Universe and peer at it with unprecedented clarity, you eavesdrop on radio signals transmitted from your distant civilization. These transmissions leave whispers of a familiar life and reconnect you with the planet you left behind.
Beyond our solar system where no man has ever journeyed, await new wonders. You visit the far reaches of the cosmos floating through galaxies and nebulas as you uncover the origins of space and time. You become a nebula suspended in the stars, a supernova erupting in a violent explosion of color and light, and a galaxy whirling in the distant reaches of the cosmic dark. You dance through the cosmos unlocking the mysteries of the universe from the beginnings of time and get a glimpse of the earliest events of the Universe.
The cosmos extend forever. Inhabiting other worlds does not imply abandoning this one. We scale the Universe and uncover the different views of Earth that man has captured through time. Through exploring other worlds we learn the value of protecting this one. You are able to fly closer and closer to our planet, until finally you find the path to your own home.
