CHILE WILL HOUSE THE LARGEST INTERACTIVE SPACE FOR ASTRONOMY IN LATIN AMERICA

“Espacio Universo”, is a project that hopes to become recognized as the most important interactive site dedicated to astronomy in Latin America. This new wing in the Interactive Mirador Museum (MIM), located in Santiago, will span across 700 m2 and offer 50 modules for permanent exhibitions related to the observation and understanding of the universe.

The project will be inaugurated at the end of 2017. Via autonomous exploration, and in a playful manner, this project hopes to bring visitors closer to what is known about outer space and the progress of various investigations, bearing in mind that Chile houses more than 40% of the world’s infrastructure for astronomical observation.
