In the largest science center in the Baltics "AHHAA", Tartu, a new endlessly attractive exhibition for the whole family "Ahhaa, gravity!" has been opened. It's a dizzying adventure that lifts the adrenaline to the ceiling and challenges you to discover the secrets of gravity in a rotating human centrifuge, the lunar surface simulator, a giant free-fall slide and other exciting exhibits.
What makes everyone and everything pull together? We feel it in our muscles when lifting something, but we don’t really notice it in our daily lives. Why does an apple thrown into the air sooner or later fall down, towards the centre of the Earth? Or why does a space rocket need so much power and force to break itself free from Earth?
Now you can learn the secrets of gravity with us.
Our new hands-on exhibition “Aha, gravity!” is an adrenaline-rushing adventure that tests even the bravest.
How much does a litre of milk weigh on Mars or Venus? Which is stronger, gravity or centrifugal force? How does it feel to fall from a height of 5 metres?
Each exhibit reveals unprecedented secrets of gravity. Come and check out:
- A rotating human centrifuge
A giant free-fall slide
A human yo-yo
A planetary rally game
And many other adrenaline-rich exhibits.
