TULSA, Oklahoma -- Did you know, the surface temperature of our sun is more than 10,000 degrees? Rick Wells learned that while dodging the heat inside the Tulsa Air and Space Museum Thursday.

The museum has a brand new HD projection system, making for clearer, sharper, more detailed images on the planetarium's dome.

The new SciDome HD system allows visitors to see more. It projects over three million pixels, a 60 percent increase over the current system. There's also an accompanying curriculum for teachers.

"That's our goal at the planetarium, to inspire kids to get excited about science and technology," Lesli Lewis, the Planetarium Manager, said.

They have several presentations each day; some are more directed to young kids. You can sit back in the dark of the theater and imagine yourself an astronaut.

There are some exciting things coming up at the Planetarium, like a live feed of next week's final Space Shuttle launch and The Moon Over Tulsa event July 9, 2011.

The Tulsa Air and Space Museum and Planetarium is located at 3624 North 74th East Avenue, across from the Tulsa Zoo.
