Kohima, Jan 17 (PTI) Nagaland Planning and
Coordination Minister Neiba Kronu inaugurated a planetarium
and an innovation hub here.
This is the second planetarium and innovation hub in
the state as the first one is in Dimapur, the commercial
capital of the state.
After inaugurating the planetarium on Saturday the
minister said it would help the young people and students to
learn and know interesting facts about the universe and all
about space thereby developing scientific temperament among
The hub is located at the Department of Science and
Technology complex here.
Science and Technology plays a very important role in
creating better awareness and inspiring young minds to explore
the wonders of science, Kronu said.
Advisor for Science and Technology, Information
Technology and Communication, and New and Renewable Energy,
Mmhonlumo Kikon said the state government envisions having
such hubs in every district of the state in the near future.
He expressed hope that the planetarium and the hub
would be a step towards encouraging, inspiring and triggering
the young minds to explore the world of amazement and universe
with scientific temperament.
Once functional, the planetarium, also known as the
space education centre would provide a unique opportunity to
bring various aspects of astronomy interestingly by simulating
a dynamic sky in a digital environment. Visitors can actually
see the performance of nature on its own cosmic stage rather
than being told about it.
The innovation hub will provide facilities to nurture
new ideas and help develop inquisitive perspectives in youths
of today. This hub would serve as springboards for new ideas
and innovation and thus will help the society to face future
challenges and meet rising aspirations of the growing
population, he said.
Senior Scientific Officer, Kevitso Kenneth said that
this centre would act as a focal point for Science and
Technology Department dissemination and improve the scientific
temper of the masses particularly the young minds and also
generate revenue. PTI NBS
