The planetarium community has a history of generosity to colleagues. This involves offering advice and material goods, even when many of the donating organizations operate on meager budgets. I have never seen a cadre pull together like this group of professionals. An opportunity of sharing and support has turned our direction.
The Great Lakes Planetarium Association has a small presence on”Linked In.” Recently, we received a request from help from a planetarian in India. His request follows
Dear sir, I reside at Mumbai, India. We started a group COSMOS – for propogating astronomy through sessions, telescopes, lcd’s, night skies etc.. My wife now looks after the activities. we are 6 of us in core team.
we have a planeterium at worli, owned by a government organisation..
I wanted to know if you can help us propogate through new aids.
India has a great thirst for knowledge and hence provide a good base. I shall discuss more..
If you can assist, please join us in Linked in and provide professional assistance and any materials that might be helpful to this fledgling operation.
