Ahead of schedule, the Planetarium will officially reopen to the public on October 4, 2012. The Manitoba Museum is the first Planetarium in Canada to be equipped with the Digistar 5 All-Dome digital projection technology. The new $350,000 projection system will dramatically enhance the visitor experience using two wide-angle video projectors to cover the entire dome with a single seamless video image.

This is the Planetarium’s biggest technology upgrade in its 42-years of operation. I’m looking forward to seeing some amazing visuals under the new dome. [MANITOBA MUSEUM]
