POSTED ON JUNE 8, 2011:
Star Gazing. Last fall, the Tulsa Air and Space Museum & Planetarium's board of directors launched a campaign to replace the planetarium's projection system with state of the art SciDome HD technology.
The new system will project more than 3 million pixels onto the planetarium's dome -- a 60 percent increase over the present system. The "Starry Night" software offers the potential to continue the planetarium's programming impact into the local classroom. The grand re-opening will be Wednesday, June 15.
As the only public planetarium in the area, the Museum & Planetarium's facility plays a vital role in discovery-based learning for thousands of students. With this new technology, TASM is making an investment in the technical capabilities of the planetarium and in the future of the community.
