Sitting outside the Milky Way: Communicating science with adults in a 3D planetarium (2017)
Journal Article
Glester, A. (2017). Sitting outside the Milky Way: Communicating science with adults in a 3D planetarium

Planetariums are evolving. In July 2015, the @Bristol Planetarium became the first 3D planetarium in the UK. Audiences are taken on a multimedia, 3D journey through the Cosmos to supplement the more traditional 2D representation of the night sky. Thi...
