PIA Planetarium - Revival?

Seems like there is some revival of the PIA Planetarium activities going on. Located in Gulshan near the Expo Center, the place and facility has attracted lots of bad press and seems like it would soon be a victim of cost cutting and will eventually be closed down. but initially it had all the ingredients to spark intense interest in Science and Technology in the younger generation while providing some healthy fun to the elder visitors but the facility never took off. The idea was great and so has been my experience with the Planetarium (when I was too young to write all this but can still remember the details).

How about asking PIA to relinquish the administrative charge of the facility (we do thank them for all the investment and the work done till now) but let us give this out to a more agile (private?) body who could attract due crowd to the fantastic place, increase the activities that take place (something beyond the repetitive shows). We had the Mars pass the earth so closely in the past week and it was an excellent time to promote the planetarium and arrange some live Mars Observation via some good quality telescope (may be for a small fee). All this and more could be done if we have a more dynamic body taking care of this precious citizen resource of Karachi.
