Mayor on upgraded planetarium: ‘Where art meets science’

Area youth enjoy some outdoor activities at the event marking the reopening of the Robert H. Goddard Planetarium, which had been closed to the public since July for major renovations of the interior and its projection system. The project cost about $380,000 and has been funded by individuals, local grant funds and $74,000 from the city, which now owns and operates the planetarium as part of the Roswell Museum and Art Center. "What you will see will exceed your imaginations," said Mayor Dennis Kintigh, who said he and donors had been given a private showing the night before. "This is where art meets science."
