Beyond the expected

Goodbye Planetarium?

By Fiona 24 January 2008 30

I heard on the grapevine that the Canberra Planetarium/Observatory was closing again… The newest media release was from the start of 2007 when in apparently reopened.

Any ideas if this is true, and why?

(not that I’ve ever been there… maybe that’s why?)

What’s Your opinion?

I think the song was called ‘sanitarium’, but it’s basically the same rhyming phonetics, so who really cares?

Anyone else know what happened to the sanitarium?

Actually, I think Metallica did a song called ‘planetarium’.

Someone whould set the planetarium up again. And use the Metallica song as the theme.

Hmmmm I wonder what happened to the hardware – I didn’t see any of the cool stuff at Revolve.

You probably already know that the Planetarium/Downer Club was owned by the Tradies Empire :-)…I know that all the bikes that used to be on display at the Dickson Tradies Club went into storage at the place that used to be the Daramalan Club (just down the road a bit)…they owned that club too. Maybe all the Planetarium stuff went there too…well the stuff small enough to store in there anyway. I would say that someone at the Tradies (either Dicko or Woden) would be able to point you in the direction of where the stuff would have ended up.

Someone mentioned to me recently that it was all in storage somewhere.

Whatever became of the planetarium? Perhaps it’s contents could go to the National Museum.

Where did the planetarium stuff go? Anyone know?
