SPACE EXPLORATION IS AWESOME
SO LET'S CELEBRATE IT TOGETHER!
-An Exciting Travel through the Wonders of our Universe-
On 12th April 1961 the cosmonaut Yuri Gagarin was the first human in outer space, and to celebrate his brave exploits, on 12th April all around the world space parties are organised every year. This year in Zürich, we bring you a travel around our universe in a variety of short talks by astrophysicists, space engineers, and even Switzerland's very own astronaut! You will discover how astronauts are trained, how far we can travel into space with our latest technology and what the new projects for space exploration are. Meet the speakers face to face and ask them your own questions.
Ready for take-off?
