New Planetarium show - '5000 Eyes: Mapping the Universe with DESI'

5000 Eyes: Mapping the Universe with DESI is a new feature-length planetarium show created in collaboration with DESI‘s consortium of worldwide collaborators, a dedicated group of scientists and engineers who are creating the most complete map of our universe.

The 22-minute planetarium film provides a rare glimpse into modern cosmology by introducing viewers to DESI researchers and featuring original footage of the telescope and interviews with DESI scientists from all over the world.

Andreu Font-Ribera features in the documentary and, together with his collaborators, has produced the catalan version of the documentary in the context of the ERC COSMO-LYA project and in collaboraion with the UAB.

The film’s exciting conclusion is a fly-through of DESI’s first year of data. The positions of over 14 million extra-galactic objects are visualized in 3D for the first time, revealing the largest structures in the universe as never seen before.
