GIScience visit to Haus der Astronomie Heidelberg

Members of the GIScience Research Group Heidelberg and Heidelberg Institute for Geoinformation Technology (HeiGIT) had a really great visit to the fancy “Haus der Astronomie” (Wow, the architecture mimics a spiral galaxy!), the Max Plank Institute of Astronomie and the historic Landessternwarte Königstuhl (state observatory) from 1898. An interactive trip through the galaxy and beyond was provided using a state of the art digital planetarium projection system. Later we could experience some telescopes in action. The really very interesting guided tour can be highly recommended!

Now we are all motivated for some more rocket science!
