Sharing the research

Not everyone knows that citizen science, that is the public participation in scientific research, plays a fundamental role for the successful development of astrophysics today. With a network distributed throughout many locations on the Earth, minor observatories, small robotic telescopes and amateur astronomers can support the monitoring of astronomical phenomena that are usually begun by large spatial and terrestrial telescopes.

This is why at the Festival della Scienza 2017 in Genova, the “Telescope Connect” project by Konica Minolta Laboratory Europe will be presented for the first time with its computing platforms and distributed robotic networks, through the experience of a multimedia trip that will enable us to discover the Astronomical Observatory of the Antola – Fascia Park and its activities.

Not to be missed

With Yubi, a small robotic telescope, and with experts on hand to offer further explanation, we will discover how computing platforms and distributed robotics networks are supporting astronomers from all over the world to investigate the night sky and its fascinating phenomena.

Take a tour in the four rooms of the multimedia interactive Exhibition “Networks to cloud nine” and bring your class to the Kids Lab dedicated to the exploration of the universe using squishy circuits and colourful spacecraft.

Interactive and Multimedia Exhibition

Join us in a wonderful adventure among big data, distributed intelligence, astrophotography, advanced sensors and technology to discover planets beyond our Solar System. Discover how the modern networks of telescopes work and experience diffraction experiments with the spectroscopy of Centro Interdipartimentale Universitario (ORSA) in collaboration with Istituto Nazionale di Astrofisica (INAF).

Kids Lab

Saturn in your hands
Spacecraft and squishy circuits

Back to school with squishy circuits and Konica Minolta Laboratory Europe: in our school lab you will have the chance to jump on the Cassini spacecraft and relive its grand finale, arriving on Saturn.

Using recycled materials, LED lights and Didò dough, in 30 minutes, we will learn about space exploration and also build a spacecraft, a small Saturn and a real electric circuit. When the lights switch on, as Cassini lands on Saturn, there will be a big surprise, Yubi gives you his word! (the kids lab is conceived and created by Elena Parodi, science explainer).
