Frequently Asked Questions

  1. How many people can fit in the planetarium at one time?
    The smaller (16 foot (5 meter) diameter) dome can accomodate about twenty five people. The larger (20 foot (6 meter) diameter) dome will hold around fifty people.
  2. How can so many people breathe in that oversized beachball?
    The air in the planetarium is continually refreshed by an air blower, which also serves to keep the planetarium inflated.
  3. What are the seating arrangements?
    Seating is usually in the round on the floor of the dome. A small number of chairs (provided by the host institution) can be brought into either dome for audience members who cannot sit on the floor for the duration of the program.
  4. For what ages are your programs appropriate?
    We believe that you are never too young or too old to learn about the sky. Cosmic Adventures has visited (and been well received) at venues ranging from preschools (three- and four- year-olds) to all-ages-welcome "outer space" nights, as well as senior living facilities.
  5. What are your rates?
    Please see our
    Rates page for program costs.
  6. I work for a not-for profit organization. Can we get a lower rate?
    Actually, most of our customers are not-for-profits, and we have tried hard to establish reasonable rates for that market. We also offer discounts from time to time (see the Current Offers page). All that being said, if you really want a planetarium program, truly work with those in need, and just can't find the budget for it, please contact us; we'll see what can be done.
  7. Do you do birthday parties?
    Yes! (Sometimes.) While not our main focus, the planetarium can make a fun and unique setting for a party. Please see our birthday party page for more information.
  8. What are the room size and electrical requirements for the planetarium?
    The dome requires a clean, quiet, indoor facility with access to a grounded outlet.
    Our small dome requires a minimum height of 11 feet, and floor space of about 20 feet by 20 feet.
    The large dome requires a ceiling of 13 feet, and 25 x 25 feet of floor space.
    Set up and take down require approximately one hour each.
  9. How is the campaign going to change the name of the planet Uranus?
    We're working on it... :)
