The Centre of the Universe was an interpretive centre created at one of Canada’s premier space science facilities: the Herzberg Institute of Astrophysics, a major research and development laboratory. The Dominion Astrophysics Observatory has fuelled that research for more than 90 years. The Centre housed a multimedia theatre, a 400mm telescope and a small planetarium, as well as both static and interactive exhibits. Open until 2013.
