ZEISS celebrates its anniversary
In 1923, ZEISS presented the world's first projection planetarium developed for the Deutsches Museum in Munich. The first public demonstration and hence the birth of the modern planetarium took place on this occasion. On 7 May 1925, the ZEISS Planetarium in the Deutsches Museum began regular operation.
Today, as modern high-tech domes, star theaters offer fascinating fulldome shows and are still a crowd puller after 100 years.
