abstract
Permanent exhibition. Opened February 19, 2000. Located on Floors 1 & 2, Section 18. The Hayden Planetarium at the Rose Center for Earth and Space occupies the upper half of the Hayden Sphere and is the Museum's Space Theater and is a 429-seat space theater equipped with a Mark IX Star Projector and a Digital Dome Project System for viewing presentations about the universe and earth's place within it (1). The Planetarium uses a scientifically accurate 3D map of the observable universe known as the Digital Universe Atlas, which is maintained by Museum scientists and visualization experts. The Digital Universe Atlas provides the foundation for the Museum's Space Shows in the Space Theater, which is the successor to the original Hayden Planetarium's Sky Theater (2, 2000, p. 14-15; 3).
