The Milky Way band

Fish-eye image extracted from the amazing ALMA planetarium show, produced by ESO and the Association of French Language Planetariums. The emphasis of the show is the incomparable scientific adventure of the ALMA project. A young female astronomer guides the audience through the story that includes unique animations and footage, leading the viewer from the first observations by Galileo, 400 years ago, to the world of modern astronomy, moving from the visible wavelength domain to explore the millimetre-wave view of the Universe, and leaving light-polluted cities for unique settings in some of the highest and driest places on Earth. More information about the show is available on http://www.cosmicorigins.org
