A new age of exploration is inevitable. This age is one of space exploration. The public is extremely interested in the efforts of the United States and the U.S.S.R. to make this age become a reality and this interest will undoubtedly increase as man is able to project himself further into the macrocosm. The study of astronomy will gain added interest from the public as man develops his ability to travel in space. A knowledge of astronomy will become essential to follow the routes taken by space travelers. Man, being a curious creature, will also desire knowledge of what has been discovered by these explorers of space.
The public needs a place where astronomy may be studied and documentary records of space travel and exploration may be reviewed. Therefore, a Planetarium and Library of Space Information is proposed.
