Climate change is one of the most significant threats that we as humans currently face.

We Are Guardians is a highly immersive, leading-edge look at the role of satellites in orbit around Earth - how they monitor the effects of a changing climate, and how the information they provide will be crucial in our fight to reduce harmful emissions.

Planetarium show tickets also include free entry to Earth From Space, a Royal Observatory Greenwich exhibition available from 21 October that takes a detailed look at our world through a satellite’s lens.

We Are Guardians is produced by NSC Creative, part of the National Space Centre in Leicester.
