ESO Supernova opening — a new supernova over Munich
On 26 April 2018, the ESO Supernova Planetarium & Visitor Centre was officially inaugurated, and its doors are open to the public from 28 April 2018. The centre, located at ESO Headquarters in Garching, Germany, is a magnificent showcase of astronomy. It provides visitors with an immersive experience of astronomy in general, along with ESO-specific scientific results, projects, and technological breakthroughs.
This picture shows the spectacular Star-roof of the centre, which weighs almost 30 tonnes, consists of glass panels set into a metal framework made of triangular sections — 262 of them, arranged to artistically represent constellations of the southern sky. More information about the roof construction is available on this ESO announcement.Kilde:
