With the much advertised August 2017 total solar eclipse as a backdrop, the  SIU Carbondale Departments of Physics and School of Architecture, encouraged students in Dr. Chad Schwartz's Architecture 351 Class to come up with plans for a Solar Observatory to, hopefully, be built on the Carbondale Campus.
