The dark side of light

Science to touch and to participate in. Together with everyone. And for everyone. With the question "Does light also have a dark side for you?", the Museum of Natural History Vienna leaves its context in the center of the city with an electric carrier bike, equipped with a lot of knowledge and an invitation to the public to participate in the research.

It contributes opinions as well as experiences into the scientific process in order to explore the present and to shape the future. And this sounds really inspiring to us!
