Since its original opening, "Cardboard Rocket" continues to play as one of the most popular shows in digital domes around the world!
Embark on an outstanding adventure as two children spend a night touring the solar system alongside their ship's navigator, a talking astronomy book. Produced in 3-dimensional digital animation and a 5.1 soundtrack with spectacular sound effects created at George Lucas' Skywalker Ranch.
In 2007, the narration track was edited to take into account the reclassification of Pluto as a Dwarf Planet. The voices were not re-narrated - we simply made a few key changes to the original soundtrack. We removed all references to Pluto as the "ninth planet" or "smallest planet" or "last planet" but we still call it a "planet." We view Pluto as a new category of planet.
We recommend introducing the program by having your presenter make some comments to explain what's going on with Pluto and why the show still refers to it as a "planet." Then follow up with a short Question and Answer session at the end. This approach has been working extremely well for us and helps to better clarify the issue!
