Museum plan boosts astronomy

SHANGHAI will build a museum to popularize knowledge of astronomy and showcase the latest astronomical achievements, local science officials told the International Symposium on the Popularization of Science in Shanghai yesterday.

Zhao Shiming, deputy curator of the Shanghai Science and Technology Museum, said the local government and scientists are discussing details of the museum, to be the second on China's mainland after the Beijing Planetarium.

Whether entry will be free also is being discussed by officials.

"Visitors will feel like they are traveling in space, instead of watching a 3D or 4D film as is common in many domestic museums," Zhang said.

Also, officials said a new Shanghai Natural History Museum will be finished next year in Jing'an District.
