We kick off our celebration of IAU100 this weekend as we join in the global event “100 Hours of Astronomy”. 

The Past and Future of Astronomy

What are some of the most notable achievements and discoveries in astronomy in the past 100 years?  Landing on the moon?  Putting telescopes in space?  Discovering the age of the universe? Which ones have inspired you?   Looking ahead, what do you think we will discover through astronomy in the next 100 years?  Where will we go?  What will we see?  After the discussion, the children will create artwork showing their vision of the future of astronomy!

Directions to the Planetarium:

The PLANETARIUM SCIENCE CENTRE is on OSU AVENUE EXTENSION.  That is the road behind Police HQ, and also behind Christ the King.

From Christ the King church/school, take the first turn on your right after passing Christ the King on your right.  The turn is signposted for Quality Distance Learning (QDL). Turn right again at the next sign for QDL.  The road bends round to the left and the Planetarium is on your left, in the same compound as Quality Distance Learning and Office Automation Systems.  

From Danquah circle, head towards Kwame Nkrumah Circle on the Ring Road until you get to Police HQ.  Take the slip road that is next to Police HQ (leading up to Ako Adjei Interchange), and take the right turn that is halfway up (ie you don’t go all the way up to the mini roundabout).  This road is Osu Avenue Extension.  Pass Rockstone’s Office, then you will find the Planetarium in the same compound as Quality Distance Learning and Office Automation Systems.  There is a large sign on the wall.

Just look for the giraffes!
