The Heavens of Copernicus Planetarium – Copernicus Science Centre2017-05-17T10:25:30+00:00

Project Description

The Heavens of Copernicus facility, one of the most state-of-the-art and comprehensive planetariums in the world, was opened in June 2011. It is equipped with a Sky-Skan’s Definiti 3D stereo system, the world’s latest star projector- Megastar IIA, a laser system, and its own production studio. But it is not just high-quality equipment that makes the Heavens of Copernicus so special: the planetarium is in fact engaged in a broader program of activity, ranging from events organized under the dome itself to meetings out in the city space, all of them enjoying great popularity. In the one year since the Planetarium first opened its doors, we have also prepared many interactive shows under the dome using the real-time system. Moreover, work is very advanced on a fulldome show of our own production. Collaboration with highly experienced planetarium-affiliated individuals has helped us to master the art of producing our own interesting, graphically and technologically intriguing shows. This knowledge has allowed us to excel at creating planetarium content, in both 2D and 3D.Macie Ligowski- the CEO & founder of Creative Planet has been involved in the project since the very beginning. Being the Deuty head of Planetarium, responsible for the technical side of the Planetarium as well as Show Production he had a major contribution into creating and equipping a Planetarium in its present state. His experience include:

-Planetarium equipment : conceptual planning, tender preparation including system technical description, site preparation, equipping, setup, maintenance and upgrades;
