Journey Through the Night for Kidsfor children from age 8 / Duration: 35 minutes
Journey Through the Night for Kids is a new live show at the NHM Vienna. Therein, astronomers explain the topics of space travel, astronomy, and space research
in an easily understandable and child-friendly way as an exciting virtual adventure.
In the most modern planetarium in Austria we will experience a real rocket launch at close quarters, land on the Moon, accompany
a space probe on its journey through space, and push ourselves to the limits of our imagination. We will learn what stars
are made up of, if we could breathe the air on other planets, how long it takes to travel to Mars, and much, much more.
The virtual adventure is complemented by an exhibition of space objects in front of the planetarium. Exhibits on display are
including an Austrian flag flown to the Moon, a real piece of lunar rock, and the original space suit worn by astronaut Franz
Viehböck – the only Austrian to have been in space.
