Pakistan is about to get its first-ever space museum. Earlier, a PIA Planetarium was there in Karachi’s Expo Centre. It gave a ‘virtual tour’ to space.
Now, the Scientific Committee of the National Astronomical Observation Commission has planned about building the museum in the federal capital. According to APP, the important announcement was made in a meeting, chaired by the Federal Minister of Science and Technology, Fawad Chaudhary.
He said that within a time duration of 8 months; the museum will be built and established. Moreover, 5 astronomical ‘observatories’ will be set up in Gwadar and Islamabad.
The minister also tweeted about it saying that one will be able to look at the moon and beyond the stars and explore the universe in ‘future’. He also informed that the provincial governments have been told to build space museums in their respective capitals.

The Ministry of Science and Technology has been making some great developments on this front. In these hard times where the country is fighting a global pandemic, the ministry played its role to help the National Disaster Management Authority, by delivering locally made ventilators. These ventilators were named as PakVent1 and are solely made to facilitate hospitals.
