The Artistic Science Of Cosmology
Humanity has been immersed in astronomy ever since the earliest civilisations, yet our understanding of the Universe and the celestial phenomena has changed across millennia.
The exhibition reveals and enhances understanding of space exploration in four parts. The first part takes you back in time – all the way from Prehistory to the New Age. It reveals the universe in the way it was seen by astronomers and scientists in individual periods. The second part presents the main exhibition of the Center Noordung dedicated to Herman Potočnik Noordung – a space-science pioneer. The third part introduces you to Potočnik’s contemporaries, who drafted plans for space travel and presented their ideas both in theory and in practice. The final, fourth part will launch you into the mysterious universe where you can get “closeup” insight into its secrets.
