We are putting together a team of architects and engineers to further develop a practical, physical model of the universe according to the Srimad Bhagavatam.
The basic idea for this model has already been worked out by Carana Renu dasi (PhD in Astrophysics, previously the coordinator and a leading researcher of the official Vedic Planetarium Reseach Project). Now we require some architects and engineers to work with us to figure out how to create a real-life, rotating, physical design for this model to fit into the main dome of the Temple of the Vedic Planetarium. This will involve details about the types of materials to be used, lighting, the mechanics, electronics and computerized control of the motions, how the physical model will be integrated and mounted into the overall structure of the main temple dome and walls, as well as the general aesthetic considerations of the installation.
A basic outline of the physical design will be presented to the Temple of the Vedic Planetarium design team through the use of sketches, 3D models, and animations.
Unfortunately there is no funding available for this project, but we are asking devotees who are keen to render some valuable service to this important and historic project, for the pleasure of Srila Prabhupada and the devotees, to please offer their time. If you have any of the relevant skills to contribute to this project, and would like to be involved, please contact me, the team coordinator, Giridhari Das: firstname.lastname@example.org as soon as possible.
