An exhibition to mark the 50th birthday of the Institute of Space Research at the Austrian Academy of Sciences
From Graz into space? Of course! The Graz Institute for Space Research at the Austrian Academy of Sciences participates in 20 space missions. For this, it has developed and built devices suitable for space, with which it can measure, analyse and interpret what goes on high above our heads.
The missions range from satellite fleets in space close to earth and observation of the sun to exploration of planets both within and outside of our solar system. Visitors find out how a mission unfolds by taking part in one themselves in the CoSA. With a degree of luck, they can solve one of the many puzzles that space presents and so gain unique insight into the universe itself.
