Every time we’ve been able to see the variety of phenomena produced by celestial objects. The movement of each element can provide an interesting show. Starting from the daily motion of the sun, the sun’s apparent motion, crossing comets, meteor showers and many other celestial phenomena.
Human interest to the movement of celestial bodies and their beauty has been recognized since ancient Egyptian civilization still prevail. Even in Greek civilization began to flourish, astronomy became a part and parcel of society. Ptolemy, the Greek astronomer and even gave the names of various constellations in the sky which became the forerunner of the 88 constellations.
Observation of the sky in ancient times was performed by using a kind of simple lenses. This gives a different interpretation of the current astronomers who have used more sophisticated tools to see the beauty and celestial phenomena. However, the discovery mechanism in the Archimedes be evidence of the use of similar tools in ancient times, although much simpler than current tools.
Introduction of a book by Johannes and the discovery of an optical telescope by Galileo in 1609 be the beginning of the development of a variety of containers used for the observation of objects . Since then begin popping up various planetariums and observatories in Europe and America.
Development of the planetarium and observatory in Asia can be said only began after World War II. In those days, Japan is emerging as newly industrialized countries, has become one of the manufacturers of projectors and a variety of simulation systems in the planetarium. However, the existence of the planetarium and observatory in Asia at present can be said is still very minimal, and in Indonesia there have been Observatory in 1919 before World War I.
It is also experienced in Indonesia. With only 3 planetarium and an observatory, Indonesia is still less able to socialize the world of astronomy. It is also due to the presence of the planetarium and observatory are concentrated. should the effort to disseminate the construction of the planetarium and observatory in the world’s efforts to popularize astronomy and .
Island of Bali as a tourist destination and also one of the island with a fairly large concentrations of people, have great potential to be home to one of Indonesia’s planetarium or observatory. In addition, the people of Bali who was very close to the world of astronomy can facilitate the realization and acceptance of the existence of the planetarium and observatory at this place.
This is the problem is how to design interior spaces according to the Planetarium to the meaning of the concept to be applied in order to have a visitor attraction and is inseparable from the elements of literature that has been set.
London as the capital of Bali province has its own advantages of other areas on the island. Various facilities and adequate infrastructure already exists and becomes a community support system that has been increasingly modern city. Development of more advanced science and high-tech existence has become a usual thing for the city. Introduction of new things seem to be a very easy thing to do in an open society with a variety of renewal.
