(p.108) 15 The Great Shout of the Universe
Bradbury Beyond Apollo

Jonathan R. Eller

University of Illinois Press

“The Great Shout of the Universe,” Bradbury’s planetarium scenario for the Smithsonian Air & Space Museum, proved too far removed from the more factual presentation that the Smithsonian expected, and the project did not move forward. Chapter 15 shows how Bradbury was able to salvage the concept and have it mounted instead in the Aerospace Museum in Los Angeles as “The Windows of the Universe.” Bradbury went on to compose original verses in the Spanish saeta tradition for “Our Lady Queen of the Angels,” built by Hollywood set designer Tony Duquette and mounted in the Los Angeles Museum of Science and Industry. Bradbury’s work with the American Film Institute seminars and the George Pal Memorial Lecture concludes the chapter.
