Pittsburgh's Carnegie Science Center's planetarium upgraded to high-def

Matt Burns

High-def and science seems to be going together like macaroni and cheese lately. Well, with that underwater exploration story and then now that the Carnegie Science Center in Pittsburgh has upgraded their planetarium to HD, it proves high definition isn't just all fun and games. The $1 million dollar DigitalSky by SkySkan projects up to five million pixels per frame by way of custom real-time presentations with the latest NASA images and databases. Images are shot up onto a 50-foot domed screen and is unlike your grade school planetarium memories thanks to magic of high definition. We are curious though if we slip the receptionist a twenty, or a new Sling Box, if they would let us throw a Monday Night Football kegger viewing party?
