All attendants and participants will be able to walk through the history of the Cultural and Educational Center starting from the first draft to its construction and equipment installation, from the first word written in a script to an entertaining fulldome show. We will discuss the significance of planetariums in modern Russia and challenges that can be resolved with such innovative equipment.
June 17 – June 19, 2019. The International Conference "Planetariums of the XXI century"
For the first time the international conference "Planetarium of the XXI century" was held on April 6-7, 2012 at the Valentina Tereshkova Cultural and Educational Center.
Our center is the first newly built planetarium in Russia. It includes: a modern classical planetarium, an observatory, a museum of space exploration and other interesting objects. The conference was timed to the first year of the cultural and educational center. It is significant that this conference was held in the year of the anniversary of the first woman-cosmonaut Valentina Tereshkova.
The second time the conference was held in the framework of the International Festival "Reflection of the Universe" in the period from 16 to 19 June 2015. After that, the Organizing Committee of the conference decided to hold the conference once every two years.
