The full Our Place in Space trail, which took you all the way from Ulster Transport Museum to Bangor, has come to an end. However...there's some exciting news for all you space explorers. The inner planets that live on our site, which includes the Sun all the way to Mars, are remaining at the Transport Museum for you to enjoy!
You'll still be able to access the coastal path from the bottom of our site during museum opening hours, and although the physical planets along the way to Bangor may have gone, the remaining voyage into space can still be completed using the Our Place in Space app!
Our Place in Space was commissioned by Belfast City Council. Led by Nerve Centre, the project was a collaboration between Astrophysics Research Centre at Queen’s University Belfast, National Museums NI, NI Science Festival, Big Motive, Taunt, Microsoft, Jeffers & Sons, Dumbworld, Live Music Now and Little Inventors.
Our Place in Space was originally conceived through a research and development project and presented as part of UNBOXED: Creativity in the UK, co-commissioned by Belfast City Council. UNBOXED was designed to celebrate creativity and innovation, with funding from the Northern Ireland Executive, UK Government, Scottish Government and Welsh Government.
