More on the Planetarium camera system

The folks who make the camera that we'll use to film planetarium content down at the South Pole this season is RED, the same folks who make the cameras for filming The Hobbit. We'll have a big fisheye lens on it though for >180 degree views that will map onto the planetarium screen. Cool stuff.

So, will the ARA drilling join the other projects filmed with the RED camera system? Yes, it will! We're looking to get good footage of the ARA drilling, deployment, and Antarctic shots of the South Pole Station, IceCube Laboratory, and normal Pole operations.
