Reach For The Moon at Dynamic Earth This February

Dynamic Earth Destination Space (2)

Following its popularity last autumn, Destination Space is blasting back into Dynamic Earth this February half term.

From 8 – 16 February, visitors to the five star attraction can explore the universe through explosive demonstrations, fun interactive activities and hands-on crafts.

Families can explore the surface of Mars using Lego rovers and virtual reality, as well as learning how space telescopes can see back in time using infrared technology. For curious visitors, there is an opportunity to discover how satellites work, and how they can be used for weather predictions, GPS and even for tracking pirates; while Lego lovers will revel in the space themed Lego sets available for building and creating. Younger visitors will be kept entertained with the space-themed crafting activities on offer, including the chance to create a unique astronaut mission patch badge to take home.

To complete the experience, the spectacular 360⁰ movie CAPCOM GO! is available to see in the renowned ShowDome cinema. The film is an immersive, historical documentary that showcases the achievements of the Apollo programme and what it took to put the first human on the Moon.

Marketing Director, Eilidh Massie, comments: “Destination Space was hugely successful towards the end of last year, so we’ve brought it back by popular demand. There’s something fascinating and thrilling about space travel, and people can’t help but be intrigued by it. The hands on activities are always a hit with visitors old and young, with things to learn whatever your age. The experience is guaranteed to entertain the whole family – and maybe even inspire some new NASA recruits!”

As well as the Destination Space activities, regular Dynamic Earth features include Scotland’s only permanent 4D cinema, the ever-popular real iceberg, a bone-shaking earthquake and the Deep Time Machine which takes visitors billions of years back in time.

Activities will run from 8 to 16 February and will be available from 10.00am – 16.00pm daily. These drop-in activities are included in the price of a Dynamic Earth ticket.
