Senator Barrack Obama Offically Requesting $300.00.00 to replace the aging Zeiss Projector
Senator Obama is requesting some serious change to help the Adler Planetarium replace our aging projection system that has educated and entertained millions over the 40 years.....
"Obama Requested $300,000 For The Adler Planetarium & Astronomy Museum. In 2006, Obama requested $300,000 for the Adler Planetarium & Astronomy Museum is seeking to replace and update the planetarium projection system in its original planetarium theater. The current system is approximately 40 years old and nearing the end of its lifespan. Revenues from the show are a significant source of income for the museum, and a new projection system will provide Adler the opportunity to enrich its current sky shows and develop new ones.
The goal of this project is to provide world-class educational experiences in the theater, and leverage private contributions by securing federal support for the planetarium. [Obama Request Letter to the Senate Appropriations Subcommittee on Energy and Water, 4/7/06]"
