Gene Roddenberry Planetarium - El Paso, TX
5411 Wren Ave, El Paso, Texas 79924 USA
For years, the planetarium still had no "official" name, other than "The Planetarium." A group of EPISD employees petitioned the school board to change the name to “The Gene Roddenberry Planetarium" after learning the WWII flying ace and creator of the Star Trek universe was born in El Paso, in 1921 in what we now call the “Five Points” area. In 2001, the EPISD dedicated the planetarium in Roddenberry's honor. Since then, the "Planetarium" has been the "Gene Roddenberry Planetarium" or as we call it today, "The Roddenberry."
