Exploring the Universe with Planetarium Audiences: Bishop Museum, in Honolulu, Hawaii is collaborating with the array of international research agencies atop Mauna Kea to bring the excitement of modern  round based astronomy to planetarium audiences around the world.  The Explorers is already showing in over 170 planetariums in the U.S., and international distribution is beginning.  Artwork and video from U.S., Japanese, French, and Chilean sources play a role in illustrating the truly international nature of this field.  Interactive programs allow audience members to build a multiple element mirror, find latitude, and other activities that result in greater understanding of this "Big Science" endeavor.
