Generations of New Yorkers first raced to space in the original Hayden Planetarium. Since its reopening in 2000, their children and grandchildren have traveled even farther - to the edge of the observable cosmos. Housed in the Rose Center for Earth and Space, the current planetarium is one of the largest and most powerful virtual reality simulators in the world.This Digital Universe - a three-dimensional atlas of all astronomical objects whose distance from Earth is known - is maintained by Museum astrophysicists.
