1 4D2U theater at NAOJ 4D Digital Universe Project Today & Future H。idehiko AgataDirector of Public Information OfficeNational Astronomical Observatory of Japan (NAOJ）
2 About the 4D2U ProjectThe 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 ProjectMassive amounts of digital image data gained by world class observation instruments such as Subaru Telescope、 ALMA Project and ‘Hinode’ etc.Large astronomical simulation dataWide adoption of broadbandHigher Accountability required for research

8 ① 4D Digital Universe Home Theater Concept image of Home TheaterFree Distribution of Digital Universe Software and Contents
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 13.7billion light yearsCore of moon 30kmNucleon 1fm・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
21 Utilization in other fields BiologyMolecule scienceScience dealing with other complex system (Nuclear Fusion etc.)Cultural treasures
22 Science is Culture. Let’ go to the 4D theater ! Let's aim at promotion of the science to make people happy.For this purpose, Education and Popularizationis important．Let’ go to the 4D theater !
