The city of Medellin, Colombia, was the first city in the entire South America to have a computer controlled planetarium. The Medellin Planetarium (officially Jesus Emilio Ramirez Planetarium) opened its doors for public on 10th October, 1984. The entire project was developed by the Astronomical Society College of San Jose under the leadership of Daniel Julian Gonzalez Patino (a renowned scientist, astronomer, & botanist of the country). Resembling a parked spacecraft, the sustainable and permanent structure was designed to encompass the area as much as the discipline of astronomy. The auditorium at the Medellin Planetarium also serves as a space to hold exhibits that are attended by international and national scholars that come from various educational fields including quantum physics and molecular biology.
