LOCATED AT CHICAGOi
New Project Is Expected To Pop-
ularize Study of
AstronomyI
POPULAR IN EUROPE
Three Quarters of Million Given
By Max Adler for Erection
of Structure
Chicago, Oct. 1.-Nearing com-
pletion on an island in Lake Michi-
gan near the Field Museum is Chi-
cago's Planetarium, the first in th2
United States. It is the gift of Max
Adler of Chicago to the city to pop-;
ularize and dramatize astronomyj
so the layman may get a new vision!
of the heavens.
Within is the great dome anda
the planetarium itself, a mechan-
ical instrument which produces aE
photographic picture of the sola:
system. Spectators are to be seated
all around it in tiers and the Zeiss
projector occupies a central posi-
tion on the floor.
As the instrument which pro-
jects the heavens is thrown into
operation the white dome pales
and vanishes into a light-blue can-
opy. The sun, moon and planets
burst forth in the skies. The stars
ascend from the east and disap-j
pear in the west.
Planets May Be Accelerated
The motions of the heavenlyI
bodies can be speeded up at will.
Thus a "day" in the universe,
which is determined by the proces-
sion of the equinoxes and which
lasts 26,000 years in reality, can be
reduced to ten minutes or one.,
Similarly our earthly day of twen-
ty-four hours becomes one of a few
minutes, if necessary, with planets
moving in their orbits at a sensa-
tional speed.
It will be possible to show any
star as it appeared in the past or
as it will appear in the future, and
from any given part of the earth.
Thus visitors to the Chicago plane-
tarium will observe how the stars
appeared to explorers at the North
and South Poles and how they ap-
peared in the time of David. An
illusion of a marvelous sky on an
ideal night is obtained, because in
nearly total darkness the eye is
especially sensitive to the blue rays
of the projection lamps.
With the aid of the planetarium

without any explanation, see for
themselves how the stars travel'
daily in their courses and how, in
the course of 26,000 years, the
earth's axis performs a slow tum-
bling motion.
,The demonstrator also can make
the stars move in ways never con-
templated by nature. For instance,
it is easily possible to show how the
stars would move if the earth stop-
ped spinning on its axis or if the
procession of the equinoxes occur-
