The inflatable gateway to the solar system made it to the BBC newsdesk.
The last week in April, the Culham Science Centre in the UK toured schools with its Sun Dome, teaching children about the stars and how the fusion of atoms could hold the key to Earth's energy needs. The Sun Dome is not an ordinary tent: it's an inflatable planetarium...a gateway to the Solar System. The Sun Dome has visited more than 120 schools thus far and has been enjoyed by 8,000 children — a fact that made it into the BBC South evening news.
