Imagine putting on a headset and being instantly transported to a virtual theater. Now imagine streaming any number of films, sharing the experience, or having a private showing all to yourself. Now imagine you have been lying in your favorite chair in this whole time, not having to leave your house or pay admission fees to any theater.
Now stop imagining, because the future is now! You can currently do this with many of the virtual reality headsets. So, what happens when you no longer need to go to the planetarium to see an immersive night sky show? One might think that a VR headset could ever replace the live experience of a real planetarium. But there are also many advantages to a VR planetarium over the traditional planetarium.
