I never saw it spelled "sanatarium" before, but apparently that is right or at least used too. "Sanatorium" is what I know. And a website said "sanatarium" in the title, but spelled it "sanitarium" in the text. "Sanitarium" makes more sense too.

A sanatorium is a facility for long term medical problems. They were much more common when diseases weren't treated as efficiently as now.

I said sanatorium. Not sanitation. You should not have said anything. They would have thought you were a horse and let you out.

As I sat in the atrium doing this quiz, it struck me that "millennium" has two Ns. (I see now that someone pointed this out earlier in the comments.)

It's not that often for me to miss an answer guessed correctly by 90% of the quiz-takers. But somehow my brain decided that "speakers" in the clue for podium should mean loudspeakers and loudspeakers only. Good job, brain!

Similarly, I thought that "stars" projected onto a domed roof meant stars as in celebrities - sort of like a display of a concert projected onto the roof of a building. D'oh! Maybe the clue should better read "domed ceiling", and include planets, too.

Couldn't think of a platform for speakers because I was just thinking of loudspeakers and they really don't need their own platform!

Any South Park fans? All I could think of when taking this was "Planet...arium"
