Buckminster Fuller envisioned a Utopian future for humanity. If Fuller could have gazed into his crystal ball, he would have foreseen that the evolution of his invention, the geodesic dome, would lead to the innovation of digital projection planetarium domes ‒ and, a ‘Fuller View of the Universe’
Out of the strength and portability of Bucky’s cosmic, geodesic blueprint, Pacific Domes designed the first and largest mobile Planetarium Dome ever found on earth. An immersive 360° projection screen which displays scenes of stars, planets and celestial objects that appear to move realistically, simulating the motions of the heavens.
“What better place to navigate the heavens, than from within the very structure from which it’s designed?”
A truly spell-binding immersive visual and sound experience awaits visitors to a digital Planetarium Dome, taking viewers on a journey into the mysteries of the universe. With over 40-years of industry expertise, Pacific Domes has created an immersive 360° Planetarium Dome out of Bucky’s geodesic architectural model. The Full-Dome Projection Liner is specially designed to give everyone the best seat in the house!
Pacific Domes mobile Planetarium Domes are recommended by Planetarium leaders. Freestanding projection dome theaters can be implemented for one tenth the price of other planetarium systems.
Planetarium Dome Uses
Visualizations can directly impact and enhance decision making. Planetarium Domes are used for educational and entertaining shows about astronomy, the night sky, or for training in celestial navigation ‒ this enables interactive exploration of both earth and space science. Topics, such as climate change, come alive, allowing people to understand global issues.
