Little Major Tom – Into the Unknown

A mission in space to track a hurricane on Earth.

World Premiere – April 27th 2023

Dr. Peter Popp CEO of Softmachine/Reef Distribution and musician Peter Schilling, singer of the international hit song “Major Tom (Coming Home),” have teamed up to create a new space adventure exclusively for fulldome theaters.

The show was inspired by the popular German children’s book series, Der kleine Major Tom. In conjunction with the premiere of Little Major Tom, Schilling is planning a series of special live performances in fulldome theaters of his hit song, “Major Tom,” which is featured in the show.

Little Major Tom brings the beloved characters of Tom and Stella exclusively to fulldome screens in an exciting tale set in the year 2050. Teenaged friends Tom and Stella live, laugh and train at Space Camp 1, honing their astronaut skills as they float above Earth. Stella is ready to dive into any challenge, while Tom is panicking at the thought of completing his first-ever spacewalk. But a massive hurricane is forming on Earth, and Tom must put aside his fears and accept a difficult space mission. If Tom and Stella fail, the consequences could be devastating for them—and for Earth.

“This show is the perfect combination of great storytelling and fascinating information about our potential future in space,” says Popp. “The story conveys how much fun it is to be in a space station, while also demonstrating how critical teamwork is to that environment. It also incorporates an important message about the future that Earth could be facing due to climate change.”

Special Live Tour with Peter Schilling and Band

In conjunction with the Show’s premiere and the 40th Anniversary of the release of his hit song, “Major Tom (Coming Home),” Peter Schilling, and his band, are planning a series of special live concerts in planetariums to include his hit song, also featured in Little Major Tom.
