Hiker’s Guide to the Galaxy

Together with “Wissenschaft im Dialog” A4E organizes a number of tours in the “Hiker’s Guide to the Galaxy” project in the framework of the German Year of Science 2023 “Our Universe”. The first tour “Breathing in the Universe” will start on September 17, 2023, 1:30pm, at the tourist info in Schalkenmehren, Daun. The 2.5hours hike and a subsequent guided tour through the observatory “Hoher List” deal with the question whether we could ever live on an extraterrestrial planet. The tour combines answers from two directions – the look at the sky by astronomical spectroscopy, and our look at the evolution of our own Earth. Along the hiking route one will discover insights into astronomy and the formation of our own planet.
