The Cosmosphere’s is planning a complete renovation for its Justice Planetarium.
The Hutchinson-based facility announced Thursday in a news release that the planetarium will close its doors Feb. 2 for the planned upgrades. It is expected to reopen April 12.
Upgrades include the installation of a new digital projection system that it says will transform the venue into a state-of-the-art facility.
The new projection system will utilize the planetarium’s full dome for all programs and imagery. It also has the ability to link via the Internet to other planetariums, observatories and telescopes around the world in real time.
Other improvements include new carpet, seats, electric and sound, LED lighting and other work.
The rest of the Cosmosphere plans to stay open during the planetarium renovation.
I haven’t blogged for a while now as I’ve been kinda busy. I’ve got a new boyfriend and I’ll introduce you to him later. Funny enough, we met at the planetarium here in Wichita. It’s romantic, isn’t it?
The planetarium is one of my favorite buildings in Wichita.
Which is yours?
