AstroTrek Virtual Reality Exhibition at the Cape Town Science Centre sponsored by NRF SARAO (South African Radio Astronomy Observatory).

Space exploration has come to the CTSC! Join us as we trek across the universe without actually leaving Cape Town. How you may ask? Introducing AstroTrek, the new Virtual Reality exhibition unveiled at the CTSC on 2 April 2021.

Using Virtual Reality you can walk on Mars, visit distant stars or take a short trip to another galaxy. Virtual reality is a powerful tool for visualising places without physically being there.

As an added bonus, also check out our new Light Room! You will get to explore the world in ‘painted’ colour and re-discover what it really means to see colour. It has been described as “truly seeing colour for the first time”!
