Adler to construct a new $40,000.000 building
Not well known yet, but the Chicago Astronomer has heard about a new construction project that the Adler will build - to house space exploration exhibits - and the new Shuttle simulator...
"Plans to expand the Adler in the near future with a new building adjacent to this one that will have a space exploration theme where we will celebrate not only the past accomplishments of the Soviet Union and America but also what’s going on right now on the international scene and with the private sector getting involved in space exploration.
The Adler Planetarium was not selected to receive one of the newly retired NASA space shuttles. It will receive the astronaut space flight simulator currently located at Johnson Space Center in Houston. It will be a centerpiece exhibit of the $40 million expansion effort to turn the Adler Planetarium into Chicago’s Space Science Center."
This should be a nice addition to the museum.
