Explorers of Polynesia

"Explorers of Polynesia"

The program focuses on Polynesian exploration of the Pacific, using celestial navigation and other forms of non-instrument navigation.  Special sections explore daily motion and the ways in which the sky changes as you change latitude. The audience gets their feet wet, metaphorically, in trying to navigate from Tahiti to Hawaii by the stars. Then, it's on to Mars!

Explorers of  Polynesia was produced locally for Tarleton Science Planetarium by Luke Wade.
