Magic Planet 

When: Fri., July 17 2009
The Discovery Center of Idaho unveils its newest permanent exhibit "Magic Planet" created by Global Imagination. The exhibit projects a constantly moving image inside a two-foot diameter globe. Unlike a planetarium, where the viewer looks out toward the heavens, Magic Planet users watch from outer space as the earth turns below them. Using a touchscreen, visitors can select images that show earth's land masses and oceans, the development of hurricanes and tsunami, the movement of the earth's crust and location of volcanoes, the projected impact of climate change and many other phenomena. Magic Planet can also be used to zoom in on virtually any location on earth for a closer look, or zoom out to examine the stars in our galaxy.
