Blackout Poems
"In place of sky views seen only from the Earth, the new system allows students to look beyond the solar system and study star formations or clusters of galaxies and galactic mergers beyond our own Milky Way from any prospective," says Karen Vandlandingham, associate professor and director of the planetarium.

"Students have the capability of standing on Mars, for example, and of having a view as if they're next to the rover that was left there."

"Geology students are taking advantage of this equipment as well," says Vanlandingham. "The 'Layered Earth' program can project huge areas of the Earth onto the dome. Any data base of earthquakes, for example, can be projected - even the center of a quake. Students can also observe what's happening under the Earth's surface as a volcano develops."
