There are an ever increasing number of satellites orbiting our planets. If you go out on a clear night and look up you may be able to spot one. There, thousands of kilometers above the ground, they keep tabs on us and provide us with TV signals, intenet, weather and climate readings and more.
Satellites have become essential to our way of life, and they will play an essential role as we face the challenges of our future.
This is a show if you are curious about ...
- Space technology and how it assists us in our every day life.
- How satellites are constructed and how that has changed with time.
- How astronomers now worry that satellites are starting to block the view from telescopes.
- How space debris can affect the future of space exploration.
This show is suitable for:
- Kids, teens and adults
Through collaboration with planetariums around the world we are able to offer this show in English, Czech, Estonian, German, Hungarian, Latvian, Polish, Romanian, Slovak and Swedish.
