The International Year of Light was a global initiative adopted by the United Nations in 2015 to raise awareness of how optical technologies promote sustainable development and provide solutions to worldwide challenges in energy, education, agriculture, communications and health.
On the occasion of the International Year of Light, ZEISS produced a fulldome teaser that takes planetarium visitors on a trip to the varied facets of light. Light affects our lives in much more ways than we are aware of. The short film approaches the phenomenon in a way that is both fascinating and informative. It will appeal to young and old, experts and the lay public, and to people all over the globe.
Light was first shown in Munich on February 7th 2015, at the reopening of the Zeiss Planetarium in the German Museum, the start event of the International Year of Light in Germany.
