The main focus is on how such a rocket works and what the recoil principle is all about. After all, this is the prerequisite for building a paper rocket that can compete with the competition.

The Astronomical Fridays at the Planetarium South Tyrol 

01.07.-26.08.2022
On Fridays in July and August, the Planetarium South Tyrol organises an entire day dedicated to the stars and planets. On this day it is possible to visit the Planetarium Südtirol, enjoy a guided walk along the "Planet Trail" and finally be present at the sun observation in the "Peter Anich" solar observatory.  
The programme starts at 10:00 am with a presentation at the Planetarium South Tyrol in Gummer with a bilingual guided tour. Afterwards we will go to the observatory in Obergummer. From there, the two-hour hike along the Planet Trail begins. During the guided hike along the Planet Trail, the South Tyrol Planetarium will answer the questions of astronomy fans young and old. After all, the secrets of the universe are not always easy to grasp - not least because of the unimaginable vastness of the universe, which this theme trail attempts to depict with the help of the true-to-scale trail sections between the individual stations.  At the end of the tour, around 13:00, there is the possibility of a picnic at the bee stand or a stop at the Buschenschank Unteregger (animals/playground).
The tour continues with the guided tour of the solar observatory at 2:30 pm.
The hike is classified as easy, but a little fitness is required. Hiking gear and hiking shoes are recommended, as well as enough to drink and sunscreen.
Time: 10.00 am
