Lars Pedersen [NO] (1985) is a chemist and educator that got thrusted into the strange world of immersive media when he assumed the role of planetarium manager in 2017.

His greatest joy is introducing this technology to guests and collaborators and to push the boundaries of what’s expected of a planetarium in a science center setting.
