The Flandrau Science Center's Planetarium Theater has been amazing and entertaining audiences since opening in 1975. Many of today's adults in Tucson remember coming to Flandrau on field trips when they were in elementary or high school. Now their children are having similar experiences when their schools bring them for a visit. However, over the years the technologies for presentation at Flandrau have changed dramatically from a lone "Hector Vector the Star Projector" in the beginning, to adding slide projectors and special effects, to adding video projectors that could show cool animations. Now, with Flandrau's "Fulldome" video technology we are able to take audiences on a cosmic journey never imagined just a few short years ago as we explore Earth and all the planets of the Solar system up close, journey to nearby stars, and go beyond the Milky Way Galaxy into the far reaches of space. Come explore the limits of your imagination!
