The exhibition highlights the themes of science, politics and society from a variety of perspectives with a view from Earth into space. The aim is to create a stimulating exchange between citizens and researchers on the topic of space. This year, the MPI for Human Development is on board with two exhibits. There is the possibility to experience life on Mars audiovisually and to learn more about the impact this environment would have on our brain. After the walk on Mars, you can embark on a journey to the moon in the relaxation tent with the help of guided meditation and breathtaking space images.
The MPI for Radio Astronomy, the MPI for Physics, the MPI for Nuclear Physics, the MPI for Astronomy, the Institute of Art History and the MPI for Gravitational Physics are also represented in the exhibition.
The Science Year 2023 "Unser Universum" explores the age-old human question of the origin of the world with reference to current developments and future perspectives. In the process, different subject areas and a wide variety of perspectives will be examined in order to answer the following questions: How do we explore space? What role do space technologies play in dealing with the climate crisis? How has the view into space influenced art and culture? And how can citizens themselves contribute to space exploration?
