HUTCHINSON, Kan. (AP) — Visitors to the Kansas Cosmosphere and Space Center in Hutchinson will soon have a chance to watch how the museum restores space artifacts and replicates space equipment.

The Cosmosphere is building a glassed-in, air-conditioned viewing area to allow visitors to watch the museum’s SpaceWorks division.

In the past, Spaceworks employees have restored a Titan rocket, a World War II era German rocket and built replicas of space equipment for movies and other museums. But that work was done in private.

The Hutchinson News reports the viewing area will cost about $50,000 and is expected to be completed by March 21.

Cosmosphere CEO Dick Hollowell says SpaceWorks isn’t currently working on a major project but it has bids out on $4 million in projects.
