Most existing planetariums can only project approximately 2 million stars. However, MEGASTAR-II can reproduce, with up to 12.5x magnification, 5 million fixed stars that cannot be seen with our naked eye. Until MEGASTAR-II, the necessity of reproducing stars to that extent was not really thought possible among planetarium specialists. However, only MEGASTAR-II can reproduce the solidity, light and shades of the colors of the Milky Way and the fine details of the dark nebula. This capability cannot be found elsewhere.
The "Geo-Cosmos" is the symbol exhibit of Miraikan and has 1 million LEDs closely set on its spherical, 6.5 m in diameter body. Based on the data sent from satellites, the appearance of the earth changes hourly on the displays and you can have a virtual experience of the "Earth as seen from outer space".
