The Museum of the Rockies, with programs and resources in astronomy and space science, links with NASA, and an educational mission with strong science objectives, is uniquely positioned to make an important contribution to aerospace education. This project proposes to use these assets to develop a cross-disciplined planetarium program and supporting materials on the promise and challenge of space colonization, keying on the upcoming Lewis & Clark expedition bicentennial as a cultural context for considering the modern parallel of exploring and settling the frontier of space.
