Aberdeen Science Centre has launched a new planetarium experience, which will run at the Constitution Street site until New Year’s Eve. Visitors to Aberdeen can see the new show, ‘Sunstruck’ throughout the day, with a number of shows running in both the morning and afternoon.
The ‘Sunstruck’ exhibition shows in the Centre’s full dome planetarium, revealing the wonders of our sun to visitors. A pioneer of interactive science discovery in Scotland, Aberdeen Science Centre’s newest show details the way that sun’s energy has supported life on earth for millennia, but now threatens our technology and way of life. ‘Sunstruck’ shows visitors just how fundamental the sun is in connecting to the universe’s cosmic cycle of life and death.
If you’re staying in Aberdeen for a longer period of time, the Science Centre also runs a variety of debates, shows and workshops, raising topical issues through a scientific lens, looking to challenge views and explore evidence on a range of ideas that impact our lives.
A pioneer of interactive science discovery in Scotland, the Aberdeen Science Centre is centrally located, in the converted former Tramsheds near Aberdeen’s Fun Beach. Visitors who’ve hired Easirent cars in Aberdeen will find plenty of free parking adjacent to the centre. Brown and white tourism signs direct you to Satrosphere/ Aberdeen Science Centre from the Esplanade. If you’ve parked your hire car at the Fun Beach, the Codona Amusement Park, Beach Leisure Centre and Boardwalk House of Fun also offer a range of fun family activities within the local Aberdeen area.
Aberdeen Airport lies just north of the main city centre, and links domestic and European flights with the main heliport for the Scottish offshore oil industry. Visitors using Easirent car hire will find the rental desk in the arrivals hall; the journey into Aberdeen city centre takes approximately 15 minutes.
