Ewan McGregor narrates new Dynamic Earth film feature
It is the latest attraction to launch at the Capital's Our Dynamic Earth - and it features a film star touch.
New movie Astronaut, which is now being shown at the science centre's full dome theatre in Edinburgh, is narrated by actor Ewan McGregor.
The 23-minute film takes the audience on a journey into outer space through the eyes of test astronaut Chad.
The latest feature, which is part of the general tour of Our Dynamic Earth, tells the story of what it takes to become an astronaut through computer-generated graphics. From training, to lift-off and beyond, visitors can feel the impact of the full dome technology as they are taken through the physical and mental effects of space travel, and are given a glimpse into the International Space Station.
The film was created by NSC Creative, a Leicester-based computer animation studio which specialises in immersive films for full dome and stereoscopic 3D.
Marketing manager of Our Dynamic Earth, Eilidh Massie, said: "We are always looking to develop our galleries and enhance the customer experience, and Astronaut offers a stunning climax to the Dynamic Earth tour."
