Planetariums are hemispherical domed theatres that project images of the starry sky and countless objects we find in our universe, creating educational experiences that teach astronomy and related sciences. Planetariums educate people about the objects in the sky, their relative movements by simulating the night sky of a particular place at a particular time.
Calicut Planetarium and the programmes it runs gives you a unique experience.
In a time when quality science education is more important than ever, a scientifically literate public is an essential part of the progress of any country. Planetariums around the world both inspire and educate people of all ages about our surroundings-the Earth itself and our place in the Universe-and they are often a place in which young people become enthused to follow a scientific career. Many of today's leading scientists chose their careers because they were captivated by the experience of a planetarium visit.
