Warm-up: International Space Festival

This year, Researchers' Night Festival is going to get an international kick-start! On Saturday, 21 September, we invite you all to Cesis, Latvia, to take part in the

very first international space festival, organised by Science Centre Z(in)oo. You're very welcome to join in multiple space-themed events, including AHHAA's planetarium and science theatre shows! In the same time, various space-themed events are happening in Science Centre AHHAA as well.

On 21 September, we are waiting for all space enthusiasts on Priekuli Airfield, Cesis, in a spectacular space festival! During the day, you can build your own model rocket and test your throwing skills on a catapult. Also, you can check out if you have what it takes to become an astronaut by going 360 degrees on a kiiking swing, jump on a a trampoline and peek through the telescope. You are also very welcome to watch the sizzling and exploding science shows by Z(in)oo and AHHAA science centres and shows in AHHAA's Starlab planetarium.

One of the most important points of the festival is a live broadcast of the launch of Zinoo-2 space probe and the pictures taken by the probe from outside the atmosphere. At sunset, we will launch hundreds of Chinese lanterns to the sky.

In AHHAA (Tartu), you're welcome to join in numerous space-themed workshops throughout September 21. If the weather is nice, we are also setting up a telescope on our roof, so you can take a look at the sky!
