Made in Space
The exhibition Made in Space answers one of life’s big questions ‘Where do we come from?’
We look into the recipe of life, and to find the cosmic ingredients, we need to take a closer look at both Big Bang, stars and black holes.
At Planetarium, you can experience a real moonstone. It weighs 207 grams and is taken down from the Apollo 17 mission in 1972, which was the last time humans visited the Moon.
The moonstone is reportedly the largest on display outside the United States.
Thyge Ottesen Brahe, most commonly called Tycho Brahe was a Danish astronomer who is considered the founder of modern observational astronomy.
In 1572, Tycho Brahe discovered a new star in the sky, which he named Nova Stella
See the drawing of the new star and models of the instruments Tycho Brahe used to measure the starry sky.
You can also see Tycho Brahe’s beard and clothing stemming from his grave when it opened in 1901 – 300 years after his death.
At the exhibition you can send a space probe off to Mars or see how it rains with diamonds between the planet Neptune’s craters.
You can also experience yourself in different wavelengths of light and see why we observe galaxies in space with different types of telescopes.
In the information system you can explore and immerse yourself in films, animations and articles on space missions and space exploration.
The Iron Meteorite from Greenland
In 1963, during a lunch break, the Danish scientist Vagn Fabritius Buchwald found a rust-brown stone which turned out to be the heaviest meteorite found by a living person.
The dome is the heart of the Planetarium, with its nearly 1.000m2 canvas which delivers a very special movie experience.
Activities for children and adults
In a series of activities, Planetarium focuses on our own moon, the Apollos landings from 1969 to 1972 and the 197 marvelous moons that we have not yet visited. Join the moon party and hear wild stories about our own and other planets moons.
All films begin with a digital space journey followed by the season’s current starry sky.
