Hyderabad: An exclusive sky show, called “Time Machine” that takes viewers 14,000 years back in time, starting from the ice age to the dinosaur era, and also to the origin of the universe, was launched at the BM Birla Science Centre in Hyderabad on Saturday.
The 45-minute sky show, which was developed in six months, describes travel in a time machine and different landmarks of the universe.
The illustration tours through 1,200 year old ago civilizations in Egypt and Sumeria and a halt at the recently discovered Anatoria, a spot in south east Turkey (on the border of Iran and Iraq) near Syria, which will come as a surprise to many, said officials.
BG Sidharth, director, of the Birla Science Centre stated that the highlights of the show are the archaeological excavations including the sculpture of a Vedic priest, different statues and a Vedic calendar, early men, celestial secrets, significance of stars.
The time voyager also takes viewers to see lunar bases, alien planet explorations and finally ends with the end of the universe.
The basic aim of the show is to help the public understand the origin of life on earth and various civilisations and to motivate students to take interest in these matters, said Mr. Sidharth.
Currently, we are running seven shows in Telugu and English with no change in price (Rs 40 per individual and 50 per cent discount for schools). We will also be holding extra shows on weekends and holidays and start screening it in Hindi also,” added the director.
