The Last Wooden Planetarium In The World

The Foucault pendulum named after the French physicist Léon Foucault is a simple device conceived as an experiment to demonstrate the rotation of the Earth. While it had long been known that the Earth rotated, the introduction of the Foucault pendulum in 1851 was the first simple proof of the rotation in an easy-to-see experiment. Today, Foucault pendula are popular displays in science museums and universities.

There is a plenty of different installations here.

    Sad. I helped restore an old Spitz Model A-2 planetarium projector several years back. Hope they can find some funding.

  3. Archy Bunka says:

    A. Bunka here. The projector is a wonder of the analog age.

    The emphasis and excellence of science and mathematics, except for the Dark Ages under Stalin (lysenkoism), will forever be the heritage of the U.S.S.R.

    Too bad they haven’t ripped down that statue of lenin yet

    Small correction: The photo with “Our cosmonauts”, the first one is bulgarian ;)

  10. How can I make my part? I live in Canada and while I can not pay for the transportation of any piece to here or back to Russia, I am willing to do the repairs of some small exhibits, maybe pay for it done by someone else here. Please put me in touch with the current owners of the installation.
