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.
