SOLARMAX is a 40-minute giant-screen documentary that tells the story of humankind's struggle to understand the sun.
Directed by John Weiley, the subject of the film is humankind's struggle to understand the sun and the sun-earth relationship
- from the earliest times to the present day.
Structurally the film will trace the ascent of humankind as expressed by our developing understanding of the sun
- and through it, our universe.
The underlying theme of the film is the triumph of knowledge over ignorance - of light over darkness.
The sun is the only star that we can study directly but it is so completely ubiquitous,
so intrinsic to life and culture, that we are effectively blind to it. It's time for a new look.
Just as the telescope made the universe conceivable, so new satellite borne instruments are allowing us to look at a sun that we have never seen before.
For the first time we really can study a star in full spate as it builds up to its peak of violence - the solar maximum.
