HUTCHINSON - The Kansas Cosmosphere and Space Center is giving its Web site a makeover.
The Hutchinson attraction says the new design will be more user-friendly, visually appealing and include more interactive aspects, such as blogs. The new site is expected to be launched July 18.
Marisa Honomichl, vice president of development at the Cosmosphere, said officials became aware of the need to replace the old Web site when users kept asking how to navigate it.
The new site features a section devoted to the museum showing the galleries and artifacts, and another explaining how to get involved at the Cosmosphere. There will also be a section on the Cosmosphere's restoration and replication of artifacts.
The center is launching a new blog on which students can communicate with NASA astronauts.
