PlanetTrekSM a proposed solar system scale model for the city of
Pasadena. There are many ways that art, science, space, and education
can be blended in a meaningful and engaging manner for the public.
Solar system scale models have been very successful in Boston, Peoria,
Ithaca, the Swiss Alps, and Sweden, to name a few popular locations.
Visitors are inspired by the artistry of the sculptures and learn more
about the rest of our remarkable solar system. In this illustrative
view by artist John Brosio, his concept for a Sun kiosk, as located in
Pasadena's Central Park, may be seen. Eventually, many artists will
have the opportunity to submit design concepts for evaluation and final
selection by a special committee of judges.
