(Linz, October 9, 2017) Linz-based astrophotographer Dietmar Hager will take visitors on a 3-D journey through outer space at the next Deep Space LIVE on Thursday, October 12, 2017. This trip is based on a 3-D scale model of the universe enhanced by 16×9-meter wall & floor projections; the itinerary includes the planets of our Solar System, and distant stars and galaxies. Immediately afterwards, the scene shifts to the LENTOS Art Museum for Part II of this cosmic excursion in which Dr. Hager demonstrates that heavenly bodies have exerted a huge influence on the world views of numerous advanced civilizations.
