"There's no better way of storytelling than teaching through the use of fantasy and puppetry.

Show description:
In space, no one can hear you... learn! Blast off on a galactic journey of scientific facts and pure fantasy with your hosts, Ot and Eema! Discover out-of-this-world facts about planets, stars, meteors and more! Feel the gravitational pull with Sir Isaac Newton,  gaze at Saturn's rings with Galileo, rock out on the asteroid belt, and cheer on the moon landing of 1969. Ever wonder what kind of gas fuels the sun, or where the planets got their name? Find out in this galactic trip filled with cosmic special effects, non-stop action, and an eclectic musical score fit for a universe as vast and diverse as our own.
Blending rod, shadow and blacklight puppetry with projections, this show offers a unique take on science for families, schools and other groups. Kids can bop along to 15 original songs, gaze with awe at hundreds of NASA images and get silly with a host of unusual characters.
