Our New System

Our new laser system

The new projection system features three high powered, solid state, laser projectors – each the size of a ream of paper pictured here – that deliver on-dome visuals and 3D atmospheric effects that fill the air above the audience. Each laser appears many, many times brighter than the old argon gas system. These projectors are built exclusively by Laser Fantasy International, a Seattle-based company.

In addition to stunning new laser light capabilities, the new laser projection system is also "green." The new technology uses less electricity than the Science Center's previous laser system and does not require flowing water to be cooled. The Science Center will save approximately 300,000 gallons of water per year and more than 30,000 kilowatt-hours of electricity – representing about 500,000 pounds of carbon dioxide emissions.
