The general public doesn’t care about science or astronomy?
For Exhibit “A” I would offer the crowds we get at Halloween when we bring the ‘scopes out while handing out candy, as well as the questions we get asked (“Where are the telescopes?!”) every Halloween when it’s cloudy and we don’t bring them out.
Roll one of these babies around the storage center and see how much time you spend answering questions from everyone who sees it.
Gotta make sure that it doesn’t stay in storage for long!
