Japan’s first system for projecting three-dimensional images of stars and planets has debuted at a museum in the Odaiba district of Tokyo, commemorating the 400th anniversary of Italian astronomer Galileo Galilei’s use of the telescope to look into space.

Projecting images eight times finer than a high-definition television system, the Atmos 3-D system gives viewers the sense of actually being in space, the National Museum of Emerging Science and Innovation said. Reservations are required. The entry fee is ¥500.
