The Wormhole

Donation Rewards System

The Wormhole occupies a glass case on the southeast side of the main floor of HRPO, between permanent Moon Display and the Martian Triangle.

This Wormhole is divided into three areas into which different items “blink into existence” periodically. Each area has either a not-for-sale item, or sale items or packages! Each of for-sale item is a special, sometimes one-time-only presence which is available to the first lucky patron who can shell out the cash. The longer an item stays in the Wormhole, the cheaper it becomes. Should you wait until the price drops? Or will someone else buy it first?

All monies gained from the Wormhole go straight into HRPO’s BREC Foundation account! The account monies are used to purchase equipment and supplies for our many public offerings.



This fondly remembered line went belly-up over forty years ago, but you can place a piece of its history in that secret safe of yours! (Black-and-white markings on picture only. Actual certificates are in fine shape.)
