ESO Supernova opening — a new supernova over Munich

On 26 April 2018, the ESO Supernova Planetarium & Visitor Centre was officially inaugurated, and its doors are open to the public from 28 April 2018. The centre, located at ESO Headquarters in Garching, Germany, is a magnificent showcase of astronomy. It provides visitors with an immersive experience of astronomy in general, along with ESO-specific scientific results, projects, and technological breakthroughs.

This picture shows part of the centre’s exhibition where visitors can explore and examine real astronomical artefacts and conduct experiments to get an idea of what it means to be an astronomer, to work in science, and to discover the mysteries of the Universe. The first permanent exhibition is The Living Universe, which covers the broad topic of life in the Universe.
