A different Solar System journey

Yesterday the 5 years students of the School Peñalar (Torrelodones) visited ESAC to make a special activity about Solar System, expanding and setting their knowledge about the Moon, the planets and the space exploration, completing the last months of work in the school their project about Solar System.


Talking about the current missions in Mars and the future Exomars 2020

To base this knowledge we use audiovisuals, special effects, 3D images, etc., to simulate our spacecraft and the journey through the Solar System.

On our journey the small explorers collected samples of rocks from the Moon, Mars sand, touched the rings of Saturn and even could see closely comet Chury.
The sensory elements that are used will awaken in the students the sensorial memory and the curiosity to continue the study of the planetary sciences.


Storms in Jupiter

A new experience that presents us the Interplanetary Journey project and that we have loved for the children and elementary students. It is also the first time we have received such young students.


Viewing 3D images including images of Comet Chury

After the space travel we took a tour in ESAC looking the scaled models of the satellites Rosetta and Philae, ISO, Soho and Herschel. Finishing with our 14 meters antenna and radio telescope.

Thank you very much for traveling with us.
We hope to see you soon!!!
