Creation Museum Unveils Historic Telescope by Famed Christian Inventor
The Creation Museum
The Creation Museum recently dedicated a new observatory housing a historic telescope developed by a respected Christian inventor whose works have been used by NASA.
The new Johnson Observatory, named after inventor Lyle Johnson, was dedicated last Friday at the Creation Museum in Petersburg, Ky., by some 130 museum staff and guests. The new observatory houses several telescopes, including two permanently mounted 16-inch reflector telescopes, with one of them being the Johnsonian telescope by Lyle Johnson.
"Because our planetarium programs inside our museum have attracted one-million guests since opening in 2007, having an observatory with excellent telescopes is a wonderful addition that will enhance the museum experience for our visitors," said Ken Ham, president/CEO of the Creation Museum and its parent ministry, Answers in Genesis, in a statement....
I will point out that the night sky will look just the same if this telescope was housed in a observatory supported by people who only believed in the Big Bang. It is interpreting what is being seen, which will be different. In any event, this is probably a good addition to the Creation Museum.
