Project Spaceship Earth

We get more details on the post-show attraction for Spaceship Earth. It appears that Siemens (who is now sponsoring Spaceship Earth) is collaborating with Entertainment Technology Center at Carnegie Mellon University.

According to the Siemens website, this project is part of a 12-year alliance between Siemens and Disney. Siemens is a technology company devoted to creating a wide range of products, including communications, transportation, and power technologies. Siemens has agreed to sponsor a post-show attraction for Spaceship Earth at Disney’s Epcot Center.

Oh please! Let's retire that Epcot "Center" already!

Still, it would be interesting to see how this will turn out. That space after the attraction has certainly been abandoned long enough, and it has been long overdue for something unique and ambitious, in keeping with the theme of the attraction and the geodesic building itself.
