I'm Hired!

I am fairly certain that being the director of a planetarium in Wisconsin means you’re our first line of defense against giant spider invasions. Godspeed!

Congratulations! That sounds like a fascinating job.

Have you experienced a WI winter before or do you have that experience to look forward to?

Congrats again and best of luck on your new, exciting job!!!

P.S. – If you can use your new position of power to twist some arms or make some secret backroom deals to get Pluto back as a planet again, I guarantee there will be an extra 10 bucks in it for you. :wink:

I have not experienced a WI winter, but I have experienced a Toronto winter and many Idaho winters. I’m prepared. We regularly drop below zero in the wintertime here in Idaho and in Toronto, they regularly get tons of snow (although it usually melts pretty quickly).

Well, you survived near-freezing temps and a tornado warning during your in-person interview, so you should adapt just fine. We like to swing between :hot_face: and :cold_face: with very little in-between. But those rare days are chef’s kiss.

I’m super happy for you! I remember it’s been a challenge/frustration for you lately, but there’s no question you know your métier and I’m happy the administrators wised up!

Kudos!

Congrats! Sounds like a fun job.

We wanted to build a planetarium when we built the observatory into the new wing of the science building at work in 2005 but the budget wasn’t there. So we got a portable one that uses the same software as the big planetariums but projects onto a domed screen about 6 feet in diameter. Gives a slightly better experience than a flat screen. Spent a lot of time learning that thing and making some shows for it but it hardly gets used.
