Raumschiff - The Maker-Space for Astronomy

Raumschiff is a place for pursuing astronomy as a hobby just like music or sports. We offer open activities, science cafes, workshops and the opportunity to participate in ‚real’ research.

People can get involved at various levels of depth – from simply enjoying the beauty of the universe to working on their own project ideas or engaging in citizen science over an extended period of time. Located near the city of Zurich, we focus on data based astronomy.

We have close connections to Universities both nationally and internationally. For example, we develop and test the communication and public engagement programme of several European space projects, including H2020.

We are a small place and happy to collaborate with anyone interested in experimenting with new ways of engaging the public in science.
