Dec. 28, 2017 -- Tibet's first planetarium will open to the public in Lhasa in August, 2018.

With an investment of 169 million yuan, Lhasa Planetarium will cover an area of 7,692 square meters, becoming China’s first-class astronomical education base.

The planetarium will feature Tibetan astronomy, religions and folk customs, said Zhang Baozhu who is in charge of the project.

In the four-floor planetarium, visitors can get a closer look to the Universe and learn about humans' space exploration.

The planetarium is expected to attract 10,000 visitors every year, said Zhang.
