Neighbourhood Earth at ICC
Travel restrictions mean we won’t be able to easily go overseas for a little while. But thanks to a new immersive exhibition at the International Convention Centre (ICC), we can leave Earth altogether and head out into space - at least for a little while.
Neighbourhood Earth is an award-winning exhibition combining the latest science with cutting-edge technology to create an immersive space experience. Developed by NEC Partners, in conjunction with the U.S. Space & Rocket Centre and NASA’s George C. Marshall Space Flight Centre, Neighbourhood Earth uses screens, surround sound and a giant projection-mapped dome to tell the story of space science and exploration in a uniquely profound way.
The exhibition’s key set piece has audiences zooming across our solar system and arriving up close to stunning depictions of Mars sunsets, Venus lightning storms and the surface of Jupiter. Visitors can also get hands-on with activities adjacent to the cinematic experience, including touch-sensing projections, holographics and building games. Models and examples of spacecraft, tools and astronaut suits are also on hand to showcase the facts, story and achievements behind space exploration, and encourage visitors to consider its future.
M Live presents Neighbourhood Earth is on for a limited season only at ICC Sydney from 22 November. Tickets go on sale 11 October 2021.
