Deep Space 8K

Embark on a space mission of a special kind with powerful visual impressions: The open-source software OpenSpace, co-financed by NASA, makes it possible to experience the current state of space research at close quarters using high-resolution images of our universe and computer simulations based on real-time data.

OpenSpace also lets you explore some of the largest crater landscapes and highest mountains in our solar system: whether it’s the Grand Canyon or the Grand Prismatic Spring in Yellow Stone National Park, Olympus Mons or Valles Marineris, Meteorite or Gale craters. Learn how OpenSpace can be used to open up new spaces beyond Earth with this spectacular Deep Space 8K programme. Exploring space lets us better understand our planet, the evolution of life and our place in the universe.
