A very up-close encounter with the wonder and fascination of outer space: from the “blue planet” of our own Earth to traveling throughout the solar system
Every year, OeWF speakers inspire thousands of people: we provide exciting presentations on space and astronomy that are designed for general audiences and easily understood by all attendees. Topics such as the birth of stars to life in outer space, the challenges of a Mars flight and the breathtaking world of Earth observation – these are just a glimpse of available topics. Our experts inspire, share complex knowledge in an approachable way, and represent the latest state-of-the-art insights into the subject of space. Learn more about our lecture presentations and experience what our speakers have to share – for your next event.
The fascination and wonder of the “red planet” – research is currently underway to complete manned expeditions to Mars
Mars is considered one of the most interesting candidates for the search for life outside the Earth: Spacecraft of the ESA and NASA are presently examining its surface and atmosphere – and a manned mission to Mars is foreseeable in the next two to three decades. In February 2013 in an exceptional field trial, researchers from the Austrian Space Forum conducted simulations in the terrain of Northern Sahara to better understand aspects of manned missions to Mars, simulations which were conducted together with partners from twenty-three (23) countries.
Eye in the Sky – Satellite-based Earth observation for the protection of our environment
Experience our blue planet from breathtaking perspectives, or look for new oases of life in the far reaches of space: with his typical mix of science and entertainment, excitement and suspense, our speakers shares an image of Earth from outer space based on the most modern satellite data. This particular presentation highlights interrelationships, gives an overview of technologies in the aerospace industry, and shows the sensitivity of our ecosystem from the point of view of the satellite.
From space-based images of Aurora to aspects of climate research being completed using satellite methods and even some breathtaking footage of volcanic eruptions, storm systems, and the traces of life itself: the “Blue Planet” demonstrates the dynamics of a fascinating planet
