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 has been presented for the first time with its computing platforms and distributed robotic networks, through the experience of a multimedia trip and the discovery of the Astronomical Observatory of the Antola – Fascia Park and its activities.

Learn with Yubi

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

School classes experienced in our Kids Lab the exploration of the universe using squishy circuits and colourful spacecraft

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 kids jumped on the Cassini spacecraft and relived its grand finale, arriving on Saturn.

Using recycled materials, LED lights and Didò dough, in 30 minutes, we learnt about space exploration, building a spacecraft, a small Saturn and a real electric circuit. Then the lights switched on when Cassini landed on Saturn! Kids lab was conceived and created by Elena Parodi, science explainer.
