I think Peter mentioned the science-tech room that the Richenbach’s built me a few years ago. He must have told you about Sebastian’s dog, Claude, coming in just after the room was finished with the big screen newly installed and wreaking havoc. The plan was to have an earthquake – radiation monitor and sky (telescope) station for me and visiting students to learn and play with. After Claude (may he rest in peace) busted the 50″ screen, Neil Richenbach decided the setup belonged in a school. They weren’t really prepared for such an endeavor, but certainly would not turn any Richenbach or Baxter money or ideas away. So, Peter, Neil and I sat down and tried to design a place in the school for such a set up.

The plan was to get us kids into tech more.
Victoria Baxter and Neil Richenbach sat with the principal and tried to find a place in the school for the “high-tech room.” The library was just too small and the project was getting bigger all the time. That didn’t bother Neil or Victoria of course and after nothing seemed to fit, they simply told Principal Jones, “let’s just tear down the little library and build a new one.” Mr. Jones just smiled as Peter layed out the plans for a high-tech library, the observatory and star gazing (planetarium) room with 25 seats. Even Thurston got involved, offering to purchase a top of the line Orion telescope to replace the model I used at the estate. Thats’ where the story gets interesting -
Town officials got the word that the school’s library was going to be bigger and far more “techy” than the town library. They met and decided to make the school library the new town library and everyone was happy. We had an entire section of it for school work, research and experiments. During the final phase of construction, Neil ordered a new, very expensive telescope for the observatory. There was a delay so I volunteered the Orion the Richenbach’s had bought me. It was a good telescope and I learned a lot about them. This new one was pretty spectacular however and we couldn’t wait to set it up. Peter volunteered to help out with any technical work. He put a laser show in the planetarium to make it more exciting. We set up a map and GPS room with 4 big screens. We tracked the ISS (International Space Station), satellites and rocket launches. This was turning out to be one fun place to learn technology. But where was the new telescope?
More to come…
