As the New York Hall of Science in Flushing Meadows, Queens, celebrates the instant acclaim of Rocket Park Mini Golf Course, they have Big Show Construction Management’s expertise to thank for putting proof to each putt.

With actual NASA Atlas and Titan rockets standing stately guard, museum docents guide young visitors through a nine-hole putting course in which each hole represents a different aspect of astrophysics. But for the Hall of Science, mere illustration would never do. Here instead, the players work through actually physics challenges – achieving proper ‘escape velocity’ to launch a ball into ‘orbit,’ avoiding space debris, and finding the correct angle for geosynchronous orbit.

grandMA Goes On 5-City Tour With Jay-Z

Jay-ZRapper Jay-Z began a 5-city summer tour with Ciara accompanied by grandMA. Lighting designer Patrick Dierson and Justin Collie of Performance Environment Design Group selected a pair of grandMA consoles, one controlling lighting and one controlling the show’s video. A.C.T Lighting is the exclusive distributor of grandMA in North America.
