Abstract: In this fulldome presentation I will take a tour through the planets, starting with the rocky worlds – Mercury, Venus, Earth, and Mars, then onto the gas giants, Jupiter, Saturn, Neptune and Uranus. As we head out the solar system, past the icy dwarf planets, we will look to the stars and constellations, revealing their 3-dimensional structure and the vast distances of interstellar space.
Bio: Graeme graduated from Edinburgh University in 1998 with a degree in Artificial Intelligence and Linguistics. In 2005, Graeme moved to Murthly, a rural village in Perthshire. Living more than a kilometre from streetlights gave him greater access to dark skies which ignited his interest in back yard astronomy and astrophotography. In 2012, Graeme moved to Adelaide with his wife and young son. He fell in love with the southern sky, graduated from the 10-week course ‘The Night Sky’, and as a result became a member of the Supernovas soon after arriving. Graeme works in the software development industry as a business analyst and likes to play with 3D graphics, full dome projection and video editing in his spare time.
