Sir Thomas Brisbane Planetarium
Australia

The Sir Thomas Brisbane Planetarium opened in 1978 and is located in the Brisbane Botanical Gardens at the bottom of Mt Coot-tha. It is named after a Governor of New South Wales (1821-1825) who was a keen astronomer. He charted the southern skies in the "Brisbane Catalogue of Stars" which contained 7385 stars. The statue is of Konstantin Tsiolkovsky, the Russian father of cosmonautics.

More About Australia

There are no kangaroos in Austria. We're talking about Australia, the world's smallest continent. That being cleared up, let's dive right in! Australia is a sovereign state under the Commonwealth of Nations, which is in turn overseen by Queen Elizabeth the Second, by the Grace of God, Queen of Australia and Her other Realms and Territories, Head of the Commonwealth. The continent was first sighted and charted by the Dutch in 1606. Captain James Cook of Britain came along in the next century to claim it for Britain and name it "New South Wales." Shortly thereafter it was declared to be a penal colony full of nothing but criminals and convicts, giving it the crap reputation you may have heard at your last cocktail party. This rumor ignores 40,000 years of pre-European human history, especially the Aboriginal concept of Dreamtime, an interesting explanation of physical and spiritual reality. The two biggest cities in Australia are Sydney and Melbourne. Sydney is more for business, Melbourne for arts. But that's painting in very broad strokes.
