The building is home to a number of different science departments and engineering groups. Each had its own requirements and space design issues. The Planetarium was part of a multi-use auditorium, which needed to be capable of providing a Planetarium experience as well as regular classroom instruction and video conference services. The mission control area provides a window into the world of scientists working in the facility. Students and visitors will be able to look through glass walls to see large displays and a video wall scientists use to examine actual images from the moon.
