It will be much different than taking out a book or video. Making sure the equipment is well cared for will be a concern, Bailey said, but representatives from the Astronomical Society will be available to service the telescope if needed and make sure everything is working well.

“It is also the most unusual, probably,” Bailey said. “We have books, we have videos, we have kits for learning languages, but this is the most unique thing we’ve ever had.”
