The idea of presenting the natural movements of the universe to a general public goes back to 1913. Oskar von Miller (1855 - 1934), who had initiated the foundation of the German Museum in Munich, succeeded in convincing the company Carl-Zeiss-Jena to invent and develop the first projection planetarium. Professor Walther Bauersfeld (1879 - 1959) became his partner, an open-minded and cooperative man, who at that time had been a member of the Carl Zeiss manage-ment for some years.
