What you can do with a domed theater, how is it done and why you would ever do it! What started as an evolution has turned into a revolution leading to the WorldWide Telescope and Unity 3D full dome interactive experiences. The Burke Baker Planetarium in Houston has been in the thick of this innovation for over 40 years.
