Stardome Diary

Note, the planetarium is not openly available. We are keeping visits to local schools and schools of UoM colleagues. If a school wishes to book us, the current cost per day is 250 gbp. The accompanying demonstrator can waive this fee if they are happy to do the shows for free and have a way of getting the planetarium to the school. To confirm availability and book the stardome, email me.

Note: We also have our events programme for the summer (based around 50th anniversary) for which we hope to have some money from PPARC to help fund - won't know about the latter till mid-March though. However even if we don't get their money we will be doing something. If people are interested perhaps we should have a meeting at which we can present the plans so far and give an opportunity for inputs/suggestions.
