Long Description:
From the Planetarium web site:

The James E. Bertelsmeyer Planetarium has completed installation of the all-new Spitz SciDome HD projection technology. This technology projects over 3 million pixels onto the planetarium’s dome, a 60% increase over the previous system. The “Starry Night” software that powers the new system is fully compatible with the desktop version of the software, offering the potential to expand the planetarium’s programming impact on Tulsa and surrounding communities.

When TASM opened the planetarium in May, 2006, the planetarium’s Spitz FullDome technology was state-of the art. Thanks to the generous contributions of individuals, foundations, corporations and the Vision 2025 program, Tulsa became home to one of only three planetariums in the world to have this advanced digital technology. Since its initial opening, over 150,000 people have experienced one of the many shows offered on a daily basis.

The planetarium is a key component of the museum campus. Available to the general public throughout the year, the planetarium also hosts hundreds of public and private school tour groups annually. As the only public planetarium in the area, TASM'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 our community. Special thanks to the James Bertelsmeyer Family Foundation, Sherman E. Smith Family Charitable Foundation, H.A. and Mary K. Chapman Charitable Trust, Ray and Linda Booker, The Williams Foundation, The Oxley Foundation, and Aircraft Specialties Services for their support of this vital project. Be sure to bring your friends and family to experience the new SciDome HD presentations and shows!
