Here are a couple of images from yesterday afternoon showing the state of the Brisbane Planetarium’s Cosmic Skydome a week after closing for major upgrades. All of the seats and floor carpet have gone, along with the console, 12.5m diameter dome and supporting geodesic dome. The structure seen here around the inside is scaffolding installed in 1995 for better access behind the dome. New Layher beams were installed yesterday above the scaffolding and platforms will be installed on them today for future permanent access to the highest levels inside, e.g. access to insulation. Various speakers can be seen sealed in plastic. New concrete work is next on the agenda to bear the support ring for the new dome.
