Even simple concepts in astronomy are notoriously difficult for the general public to understand, since many ideas involve three-dimensional spatial positional relationships and orientations between astronomical objects. However much of the teaching materials used in astronomy education are 2D in nature. Digital video full-dome planetariums have the potential to bridge the comprehension gap, using 3D virtual simulations in immersive environments that not only provide spatial context but may enhance learning in ways not possible via other techniques.
