The L. Russell Kelce Planetarium, all refreshed and revived, debuted a series of new shows during the fall semester. David Kuehn, interim chair of the PSU Department of Physics, said the planetarium underwent a makeover last summer, including the replacement of its old, analog projector.
In addition to the new technology, the planetarium also received new paint, carpeting and upholstery.
Kuehn said the planetarium is a valuable teaching tool for hundreds of students in classes like Descriptive Astronomy and Physical Science each year. It is also an important outreach to the community, hosting tens of thousands of school groups and community members since it was first opened.
