The three major exhibition areas interpret "people and the universe"
At the site of the Shanghai Planetarium site, you can see that its main building is shaped like three interstellar orbits, meaning that the spherical buildings of the earth, the moon and the sun "run". The unique design of the "round hole skylight" and "balloon aura" on the main building makes the building itself like an astronomical "instrument".
