In the fulldome show "Mysterious Oceans - The Eddy Hunt", the audience accompanies the coastal researchers in their unique search for previously unexplored eddies in the ocean. For the first time a Zeppelin was used for this purpose in June 2016. You can experience the expedition "Ocean Clockwork" in a 30-minute 360° production with real-life images.

Our oceans and the great ocean currents are influenced by the force of countless small eddies in the water. Like the gears of a clockwork, these eddies interlock and determine the worldwide climate, the appearance of algae blooms and also the migrations of fish. In a 9-minute animated fulldome production, the viewer dives past fish and jellyfish, experiences the use of a research zeppelin and follows scientists in their hunt for the eddies. In combination with a three-dimensional sound, you can experience the world of research. The team behind the project
