 The EMERALD™ system is more than a planetarium


This digital immersive theater not only will be an invaluable resource for exploring the night sky, it will transform learning across disciplines.


Classes in Neuroscience can dive into renderings of brain scans. Biology students will be able to 'travel' through the human cells, geology classes could travel over maps and canyons while superimpose updated satellites information.

In the humanities and social sciences, students could tour ancient cities or visually display and manipulate large demographic data sets exploring the evolution of trends, such as immigration or housing prices.


Music classes will be able to use the space to translate sound into visual images (2). Art students can explore sculptures and buildings from different perspectives.

In astrophysics - a class could ‘fly’ through the Milky Way, learn about the spectral type of a given star and land on the Lunar surface or instructors could patch in data from space probes and project images from their landing sites on other planets or moons.


For archeo-astronomy, the sky could be reconfigured to match positions of the stars and planets at any point in history, to observe how sites like the Egyptian pyramids or Mayan temples were aligned with the stars and planets, at the time of their construction.
