The Macao Science Center - designed by world-renowned Chinese-American architect I.M. Pei - is instantly recognisable by its silvery, cone-shaped exterior. There are fourteen galleries arranged in a spiral and accentuated by an arch shape.
After Beijing and Hong Kong, Macao is the third city in the world to possess the 8000 x 8000 pixel screen equipment. The Center also generates 3D effects via a high definition 3D projection system in the Space Theatre of the Planetarium, the first digital system to be simultaneously equipped with ultra-high definition (8000 x 8000) and 3D visual effects in the world - all designed to give visitors an entertaining yet educational insight into the fascinating world of science. In addition, a same-scale model of the Shenzhou-VII spaceship and a number of automatic intelligent robots will be featured in the brand-new Macao Science Center.
