Cosmosphere Planetarium To Be Renovated, Upgraded

KSAL StaffOctober 28, 2014

The Justice Planetarium at the Kansas Cosmosphere and Space Center in Hutchinson will be renovated and upgraded next year, including installation of a new digital project system.

The $400,000 renovation will be funded by contributions from the Walter E. & Velma G. Justice Fund for Reno County and from Dave and Dee Dillon.

The Hutchinson News reports the upgrades will include the projections system, new seating, carpet, lighting, control system and sound system. And the two-decade-old optical starball will be replaced. The new projection system will allow the Cosmosphere to tailor programs for specific school field trip themes and grade levels.

The planetarium will close for renovation in February and reopen in March.
