Through the conversation between a child and his mother, planetarium show “Travelling with Light” tackles the importance of light in all areas of our lives. The movie presents different scenarios that reveal the complexity of light and its direct influence on our planet.
The Sun is the closest star to Earth and generates the energy that provides the light and heat necessary for life. The study of the Sun’s light and that of other stars and galaxies enables the development of several models that explain the origin, structure and evolution of the universe.
Nevertheless, the Sun is not the only source of natural light. Fire has accompanied the Earth since its inception and has played a very important role in the evolution of the human being, so much so that its discovery by primitive societies changed their way of life. Even artificial light and its applications in medicine or communication reveal the relationship between humanity, life and light.
