Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman Novo Theatre ( Bhashani Novo Theatre / Vasani Novo Theater)


 How would
it be if all the galaxies, planets and asteroids were brought about in a
room, just before one’s eyes, where one could watch their movements in a
lively image? It would be an absolutely thrilling experience no doubt, The
development of modern science and technology has finally enabled us to
experience just that in our own country. Recently, the ‘Space Theatre’ at the
turning point of Bijoy Sorani, Dhaka has undergone . Its completion. The
Ministry of Science, Information and communication Technology in Bangladesh
built the theatre under a Development Project. The architectural design was
also provided by the ministry.
The Dhaka Bhasani Novo Theatre has aroused a great
deal of curiosity amongst the general public. Some have imagined it to be a
theatre promoting the cultural arts while it is in fact a theatre built in
order to promote astronomy. The planetarium displays the solar systems
through a special projector and enables us to gain a wider knowledge of outer
space and our galactic well as learn more about stars, their names, movements
etc. with the help of scientifically powerful projector inside the
planetarium, the astronomical shows are displayed on a large curved domed
screen on the celling. This curved ceiling represents the sky and shows
moving images of plants and starts through a projection onto a large-screen
dome at an angle of 120 degrees. At the time of projection, the planetary
system is also for the better understanding of the spectators, interpreted in
both Bengali and English.
Bangladesh lags behind in awareness and knowledge
of astronomy compared to the rest of the world. This is because our country
is not so well equipped with the modern technology as most countries are.
Advanced countries in the world have a large number of planetariums to
provide their people with this form of Edu-entertainment. Dhaka Bhasani Novo
Theatre will now be allowing this same privilege to the general public of
Bangladesh .
It is simply a matter of time before the required
equipment is fully installed inside the planetarium. Its opening ceremony is
to be launched at the end of this year. Many are eagerly awaiting the
inauguration of this space theatre. This will greatly contribute towards
wider knowledge and stronger awareness of astronomy, a less recognized
subject of interest in Bangladesh . This is a most excellent way of
encouraging young minds and catering to the Needs of the interested public.

1) Planetarium show
