Here’s how Fiske Planetarium describes its new system:

“The University of Colorado’s new Fiske Planetarium fully surrounds audiences with a 65-foot diameter screen, dazzling visuals, and fantastic sound. You are fully surrounded, and the image is equal to 40 Blu-ray players all playing at once! The new star machine, which looks like R2-D2, shows 20 million stars and the Milky Way, the most beautiful indoor sky ever. Late-night laser shows are also offered with our new state-of-the-art laser system.”
