Planetario Galileo Galilei was designed by architect Enrique Jan and it opened its doors in 1962. Its galactic shape, inspired by Saturn, features five floors, six helicoidal sets of stairs, and a circular planetarium paneled with wood that has space for 360 reclining seats.
The planetarium’s old boring white lights used to suck up 37.5 kilowatts, so they were replaced with a more environmentally friendly system that requires only 2.7 kilowatts in total. The new system also features different lighting patterns, colors, and motifs including Argentina’s sky blue and white flag.
