Rogers, who had a lifelong passion with the sky and astronomy, got a pilot's license while still in high school. He also produced with the Carnegie Science Center in Pittsburgh a planetarium show called The Sky above Mister Rogers' Neighborhood. This is still shown at many planetariums in the United States.
