Learn all about the lives of stars, from formation to death. Use simple rainbow devices to find out the chemical composition of the Universe. Admire the magic planet, a spherical projection able to reproduce any planet or star with all its motions, colours and landscapes. Play God by building the Universe from the big bang to our days. Hold in your hands rocks older than our own planet. Build a scale model of the solar system. Find out about life in the Universe. Attend our popular lectures in the majestic Gustave Tuck Lecture Theatre. Use some of our telescopes to look at the Sun and the Moon (weather permitting). Talk to our young scientists who are studying newly discovered planets around distant stars and the mysteries hidden behind the dark universe.
