Chicago might not be home to any of the many NASA centers, nor launch rockets from its shores, but we play a huge role in exploring and studying the cosmos. Home to America's first public planetarium, Chicago continues to make its stamp on the race for space through cutting edge technological developments, space education programs and cosmic observation.

Cosmic Chicago will cover space related events happening in the city, astronaut visits, happenings and interviews, NASA and commercial space business, stories about local students engaging in citizen science and everything else to do with the exploration of the Universe.  We don't expect all our readers to be obsessed with space, but we'd like to show you that there is a place in space for everyone!
