A Chronicle of a Journey to Earth
Imagine that you are a traveler from the depths of interstellar space. As you approach our solar system, what will you find? Long before you reach the Sun, you traverse the Oort cloud, the deep freeze at the outermost reaches. You pass by the gas giants and their families of moons and rings. Finally, you reach the inner solar system and the rocky worlds of Mars, Earth, Venus and Mercury. From the cold frontier inhabited by the dwarf planets of the outer solar system to the warmth of the Sun, any self-respecting traveler would ultimately be drawn to Earth, to explore and understand how this planet alone has come to be an ideal haven for life. Discover seasonal climate changes, and witness wondrous visions from the surface of this unique world – Moon phases and eclipses.
Magic of the Otherworld
Journey through the Otherworld – a magical place born from the mythology of many cultures. It’s a place of legends, where mythical creatures once existed in harmony among the mountains, islands, spring and forests. Today, we experience the Otherworld through our imaginations and perhaps in our dreams. Sit back and enjoy the virtual landscapes accompanied by the beautiful harp music of Christine Hogl.
