'Enkeltje Universum' (One-way trip to the universe), information about ice balls, astronauts and other space travellers exploring the unknown. As early as the beginning of the seventeenth century, scholars travelled to the heavens above with their telescopes. And since then there have been new telescopes – not only on earth but also in space – which can look very far into space. But we don’t only want to see space, but travel through it.
In 1926, Robert Goddard launched the first liquid fuel rocket that went no higher than 12.5 metres. Today, we can land probes on comets and we may soon even fly to Mars to begin living there. How do these remote space trips work? How will things look on Mars? What are the consequences of all those space missions? You’ll get answers to these questions and more at the Eise Eisinga Planetarium in the 'Enkeltje Universum’ exhibition. Return tickets are not yet available.
