Journey Into Space

Take a real-time trip through space using our NASA supported Uniview Digital Universe Software. See the constellations and more in this surreal space museum, the only one of its kind between Denver and Minneapolis!.

Uniview is widely recognized as the most accurate data visualization platform in the planetarium industry. At its very core, the Uniview software is an interactive computer platform designed for live presentation. Powered by scientific databases and physically accurate visualizations of Earth science, Uniview produces visually striking journeys through databases of any scale.

Real time Astronomy & Earth Sciences. Our NASA supported Uniview Digital Universe Software allows you to explore over 50 categories of scientific models, including all known objects in the solar system, Kepler candidates, star forming regions, star clusters, the local group, deep space objects, Sloan galaxies, and quasars to name a few in this unique space museum.

Classic Astronomy Observation. Uniview simulates orbital motion with the same precision as NASA simulations for space missions. Day and night sky, celestial and galactic coordinate systems, meridian and ecliptic are just some features of our complete classical planetarium system. Uniview can calculate and transition to events such as sunrise, sunset, solar noon and midnight. It can also transition to and from any geographical location on the surface of the Earth or any other planet, to observe the sky from different locations. Earth science data features include all the essential planetarium features, such as 88 constellations with lines and artwork, planets rendered as properly colored and lit points when seen from afar, the Milky Way, and much more.

Planetary Exploration and Earth Sciences. Uniview has access to a network of daily updated satellite imagery that can be integrated in a show at a minute’s notice, directly to your planetarium experience. Through streaming of cloud-based data, you get access to daily updated satellite imagery, weather events, planetary and lunar exploration, and extra solar planets through this intricate space museum.
