For an experience that’s truly out of this world, visitors to the 2008 Summer Games will need to go no further than the new Beijing Planetarium. The world’s first digital all-dome laser-projected real-time planetarium is powered by a Zeiss All Dome Laser Image Projection system driven by SGI(R) Onyx(R) visualization computers. In the newly opened SGI(R) Digital Space Theatre, visitors will — for the first time — see spectacular high-contrast color images including more than 37,000 stars, 30,000 galaxies, constellations, nebulae, planets, spacecraft, and deep space objects.
