The Universe: A Walk through Space and Time is a sleek interactive exhibition installed at the Adler Planetarium in Chicago. Visitors encounter the Universe through the M1 designed and programmed interactives that show audiences how galaxies, stars, planets – and even the very atoms in their bodies – were created as the Universe grew. A spectacular cinematic projection wall showcases the vast enormity of regions farther than our Solar System, taking spectators billions of light-years from Earth to the edge of the cosmos, while touch screens allow them to investigate the diverse and beautiful objects of deep space.

A spectacular overhead projection allows visitors to zoom from one wondrous location in the Universe to another, showing ultra high resolution images of the most beautiful objects in deep space. Using interactive stations in the exhibition, visitors can send e-postcards to themselves from Neptune, the Orion Nebula, the Andromeda galaxy, and the Coma Cluster of galaxies.

At the end of their deep space journey, audiences are left with a greater awareness of how extensive the Universe is, and that it continues to evolve. While scientists have uncovered many mysteries of the cosmos, the opportunities for exploration remain limitless. M1 designed the interactive systems, projection, lighting sound design. We were contracted to provide all equipment for the installation design automation procedures to run for the next 10-15 years.
