News from Denver
- A big week here in Denver. The Gates Planetarium at the Denver
Museum of Nature & Science featured the world premiere of our new
Fulldome show "Black Holes: The Other Side of Infinity" last weekend
and sold out every seat. DMNS staff produced this ground-breaking
show supervising a dedicated team of collaborators. Many in
attendance described it as "the best planetarium show ever". Details
about the show and a trailer are available at.
Check out "Around the World in 360 degrees, Encore!" lecture by
Greg Downing, listed on the same DMNS web page. This is an immersive
lecture featuring Greg's fantastic panoramic photography displayed
through an SGI supercomputer and our very bright and sharp SEOS
projection system. Take a moment to visit Greg's web site.
Additionally, Gates is pleased to announce the installation of an
LED "Rear-Window" captioning system. This proprietary technology
provides our hard-of-hearing guests with a text display of narration
which is available to every seat and causes no distraction to the
rest of the audience.
