AstroTour Wednesday 22 September 2010
Exploring the planets of our Solar System, deciding the ultimate fate of a
star or flying around the galaxies in the local Universe are all possible
in a 3D AstroTour from Swinburne University's Centre for Astrophysics and
Using innovative Virtual Reality technologies developed by the Centre for
Astrophysics and Supercomputing, AstroTours are designed to educate and
entertain audiences about astronomy. The movies, animations and
simulations used to explore the Universe are all produced by Swinburne
Astronomy Productions: our team of astronomers, visualisation researchers,
animators, artists and programmers.
Each AstroTour is hosted by a professional astronomer who adapts the
