Omnimax & Science World

There is big and then there is biggest. This would be the biggest in BC.

The Omnimax is an all consumeing screen with a dome shape that encompasses your entire line of vision. The experience can be quite dizzifying when there is large movement on the screen.

It's was origonally the Canada Exhibit (I think) for expo 86 and then turned into science world after the expo ended. It has since then steadily been playing fullsized documentaries about all things regarding science, sports, foreign countries and other thing worth seeing at emmense size.

The movie that we will be seeing is "The Hubble" which is a documentary of the hubble telescope. Movie starts at 1pm and is 45 minutes long.

Behold the synopsis:

Change Your View of Our Universe
Experience a gripping story full of hope, crushing disappointment, dazzling ingenuity, bravery and triumph. Hubble will take viewers on a journey through distant galaxies to explore the grandeur and mysteries of our celestial surroundings and accompany spacewalking astronauts as they attempt the most difficult and important tasks in NASA's history. Be offered an inspiring and unique look into the Hubble Space Telescope's legacy and highlight its profound impact on the way we view the universe and ourselves.

The Hubble telescope spins around the earth at the speed of about eight km per second, making a full rotation every 97 minutes. This Cassegrain reflector telescope bounces light from mirrors to the telescopes science instruments.

Now is a good time to go as, according to the website, the entry fee for the "Ultimate Experience" is $19.75 with HST. Normally it would of been $26.50 where it not under renovations. That will be for the movie and the opportunity to see the science exhibits. It could very well be the most educational meetup this group has ever had.

We'll meet inside Science world in the  main lobby.  If anyone had trouble finding the group please call me at[masked] and I'll let you know where we are.

After we're done we can head over to the nearby Mc'D's for some lunch.

Should be a fun day. Hope to see y'all out.
