They are with us all day. When we wake up, go to school, to work or for a trip, and when we spend time with our families in the evening, too. And at night? In the darkness of the night, they guard us while we sleep. Without them, we would not have navigation in our cars or mobile phones, accurate weather forecasts, and in fact many everyday items, either. What are they? Artificial satellites, of course!
We used to wander around the continents and the oceans to expand to every corner of our planet. Not long ago, like heavenly riders, we conquered Earth’s atmosphere. And now… now we are becoming wanderers in a new vast world called the universe. Satellite technologies help us every day. They are the symbol of international cooperation across the continents.
The show Satelix is a result of an international project between six European planetaria: Brno Planetarium and Observatory, Planetarium Hamburg, Planetarium Wenus, Slovak Central Observatory, TIT Planetarium Budapest and The Baia Mare Astronomy Science Museum.
The main aim of the show is to present how cosmic technologies affect our everyday lives without us even realising it.
"Universe to reach? In Planetarium!"
