March at the Planetarium of Padua

10 Feb

March at the Planetarium of Padua

The Padua Planetarium also consolidates the 2017 proposals for 2018, proposing itself with its 250 thousand visitors from the day of its inauguration, as one of the important realities of the city of Padua. There will also be the interesting proposals of the last years for the new year, in particular: the new “live” lesson designed to present the discoveries of Galileo Galilei to primary school pupils: Discover the sky with Galileo; four new films to combine with live lessons: Vacations in the Solar System, Earth, Moon & Sun, Unknown Worlds and Evolution; a new alternative to the Sun’s observation laboratory: “Stelle & Quiz”, an interactive lesson that enriches a live lesson of questions and answers.

Also noteworthy is the Space Next-Destination Universe film, which offers an extraordinary insight into the achievements of the past, the science of today and the possibilities of tomorrow as well as promises thanks to private space companies and national research programs. The result is an immersive experience that leads us to venture between the planets and interstellar space experiencing great emotions, the same that animate generations of explorers, scientists and dreamers. Let’s go and find out what’s always beyond borders that are always new.

In a simple way and with the special effects of digital technology of the Planetarium of Padua, we will discover the secrets of these distant planets … waiting to find the first extrasolar planet similar to our Earth.

How do we understand that the Earth is spinning around the Sun?
