The centerpiece of the Planetarium is a tilted semi-dome screen nearly 15 meters in diameter, supported by high resolution 3D digital projectors. The Planetarium has around 127 seats equipped with interactive controls. Wearing special glasses, the audience can see 3D images projected onto the screen. Its powerful database, coupled with the amazing projection effects, can take viewers on a journey traveling freely into space. The system can also show digital Dome films, thus making the Planetarium a multi-functional Dome theater.
