Abstract

In ancient times the stars and the Moon were humans’ only guide to cross the seas and explore the depths of the deserts. With the use of modern technological gadgets, and the increasingly light pollution, citizens of the world stopped looking at the heavens. How can planetaria play a role in reviving public interest in astronomy? How can the beauty of astronomy play a role in luring the youth to pursue a career in science? How can astronomy play a role in raising public awareness about preserving the environment? Moreover, how can astronomy play a role in the dialogue among civilisations?
