A Lecture by Fabrique des Lumières

6 July 2024 | 19:30 - 21:00


Due to the success of our first lecture with renowned astronomer Govert Schilling in February, we are thrilled to announce an exclusive second lecture for one night only, on Saturday 6 July. This special event will also launch our Summer Nights program, featuring the popular exhibition 'Destination Cosmos' on display every evening in July and August.

Join Govert Schilling, the Netherlands' favorite astronomer, as he will guide you through the mysteries of the universe and give you the keys to understand astronomical discoveries.

After the lecture, dive deeper into the wonders of space with 'Destination Cosmos: The Immersive Space Experience.' This exhibition will transport you from the European Space Center in Kourou to Neil Armstrong's monumental lunar steps, and showcase the first robot 'selfie' on Mars. Experience the immense scale of the universe as you travel beyond our solar system in this extraordinary odyssey.

This lecture will be given in Dutch.
