3D-STAR MAP

This is a three-dimensional aid to viewing some of the nearer stars of our galaxy, with an accurate-to-scale perspective of the distances between them. To activate the Star Map, click the wall immediately opposite the Star Map console.

PLEASE NOTE THAT ACTIVATION OF THE STAR MAY TAKE 2-3 MINUTES, AS A COMPLEX SERIES OF TRIGONOMETRIC CALCULATIONS NEEDS TO BE DONE TO GENERATE AN ACCURATE REPRESENTATION OF THE STAR SYSTEMS AROUND US.

You are encouraged to fly and hover in the 3-D Star Map Display Room in order to best enjoy this exhibit.
