Dubai's biggest planetarium opens its doors

The Children's City of Dubai Municipality has proudly opened the largest and most advanced planetarium in the emirate.

Using state of the art technology allowing for the three-dimensional mapping of the universe, the new planetarium will offer the children of Dubai the chance to understand the stars in an interactive and engaging environment, the organisation states.

"It also provides a big opportunity to obtain the required educational materials for the children in general and for the school children in particular," states Children's City.

The organisation has overseen the planetarium project in accordance with directives decreed by UAE vice-president, prime minister and ruler of Dubai His Highness Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, with work carried out exclusively using the skills of the local cadre.

Among the newest additions to the facility is a FidelityBright display solution, which was developed by Global Immersion systems last year.
