Miraikan, the National Museum of Emerging Science and Innovation (Miraikan, Director: Chieko Asakawa) will hold a revival screening of the planetarium work “Colors of Darkness” with music by musician Rei Harakami from June 26 (Sat) to July 25 (Sun), 2021, the 10th anniversary of his death. This is a rare opportunity to enjoy the realistic starry skies created by the Megastar-II cosmos planetarium projector, which has been described as “the world’s most advanced”, and the pleasant harmony of the floating electronic sounds of Mr. Ray Harakami, after a lapse of about 15 years.
‘Colors of Darkness’ is a planetarium work that focuses on what you can see and what you can’t see. By “looking” at the night sky from the perspective of cutting-edge astronomy, including infrared rays, radio waves, and X-rays, we can see that the darkness is filled with a variety of things. In addition to this, simulated images of dark matter have been added, which still cannot be seen, using theoretical models to give a sense of the existence of “invisible things.
from June 26, 2021 to July 25, 2021
Open on Saturdays, Sundays and Public Holidays only. By appointment info.
