  • GCOS-funded five-year project about sunspot data concluded
  • An interactive exhibition about our star
    What does a star 150 million kilometres away have to do with the dinner table in our house, the clock radio and a wardrobe full of colourful T-shirts? To answer that, we will have to explore the exhibition spaces and get involved ourselves. We will thus be able to look at ourselves in a different light and discover that the Sun touches our lives even when we don’t expect it.
