Out of This World
A recent visit to the Academy of Sciences in Golden Gate Park http://www.calacademy.org/ for the new Planetarium show. The Planetarium is different from any other i have seen with a definite 3 D theater aspect. The entirely digitalized 30 minute long show was impressive if somewhat overwhelming in its content.
Any presentation that intends to take viewers to the the fatherest reaches of space, however, is bound to be beyond the understanding of most of the general population. Still, it was an incredible experience to, via the spectacular nature of this show, be taken out of this world.
