Re: Follow up: planetarium at Universities and Colleges
- Rice University has a 5m Discovery Dome set up in a lab space. Ready to inflate and be ready to go in 10 minutes.
It is used on campus for education for astronomy classes, courses for teachers, astronomy "open houses" , visiting prospective students, and special events. it will be used this Friday, for example, in support of our Astronomy Open House.
