Dancing with the stars

Zeiss planetarium

The Zeiss Planetarium Wien is one of the most modern planetariums in the world. Its Multimedia shows take spectators to breathtaking galactic journeys through space and time.

Carl Zeiss Jena’s Universarium Modell IX is one of the most sophisticated starprojectors in the world, picturing the stars in their original colors, may they be white, red or blue. The planetarium’s dome ceiling projects over 9,000 stars.

Did you know that 2009 is the International Year of Astronomy? This year marks the 40th anniversary of man’s landing on the moon as well as the 400th (!) anniversary of the first time the Italian astronomer Galileo Galilei aimed at the sky. What big steps for humanity!

Miss Iggy can only say reach for the stars!
