1 4D2U theater at NAOJ 4D Digital Universe Project Today & Future H idehiko Agata Director of Public Information Office National Astronomical Observatory of Japan (NAOJ

2 About the 4D2U Project The project's goal is to visualize astronomical data in a way that helps watchers feel as if they are witnessing the unfolding of the universe. "Four dimensions" refer to the three dimensions of space and the one dimension of time embedded in their data. "Digital" refers to computer graphics visualizations of digital data. The resulting acronym is "4D2U", and it is also astronomy's way of saying "4D to you." For astronomers, the goal is to provide a rare 3D view of data to help with research. Unrestricted explorations in 3D are essential tools for understanding modern observational data and computer simulations.

3 Background of Project Massive amounts of digital image data gained by world class observation instruments such as Subaru Telescope ALMA Project and Hinode etc. Large astronomical simulation data Wide adoption of broadband Higher Accountability required for research

4 Real time visualization contents Overview of Current 4D Theater oftware Astronomical Data Solar System Stars galaxy Far galaxy Model of Solar System Model of Globular Cluster Model og our galaxy Model of Large Stractuer Solar System Formation Moon Formation Galaxy Formation Large Structure Formation Pre-made Movie contents 4D Digital Universe Theater Contents Interface Data of Instruments Movements or Globular Cluster Binary Star Formation H2 gas in our galaxy Jet of Proto Star

18 Future research and development: 4D Digital Universe Theater Net Concept Image of Remote Display System Delivering live lectures from NAOJ to distant locations in 3D. (Using the network to deliver the image and voice of the guide)

19 Expanding content types: Making real images into 3D vision Equipment for recording 3D HD vision contents For example: Introducing observatories, instruments etc.)

20 Expanding content types Combining different data Reconstructing the latest scientific knowledge within the contrast (space scale) of over 40 digits Using real science and simulation Enjoyment, depth, and purpose of science 13.7billion light years Core of moon 30kmNucleon 1fm

21 Utilization in other fields Biology Molecule science Science dealing with other complex system. (Nuclear Fusion etc.) Cultural treasures

22 © 4 Science is Culture. Let's aim at promotion of the science to make people happy. For this purpose, Education and Popularization is important Let go to the 4D theater !
