Imagine a future where humankind can travel through space and settle upon alien planets. At Under a Distant Sun, we explore the factors that are required to make a planet habitable and look at the technological advances that may one day allow humans to become a multi-planetary species.

Packed full of exciting and thought-provoking activities this experience is galactic fun for the whole family. Activities include:

Step into the shoes of an interstellar explorer as you arrive at MOTAT’s Space Port. Discover the fascinating theoretical science of terraforming, and collect your Planetary Passport before venturing onward.

Craft your own asteroid and crash it into the surface of an exoplanet as you discover methods and technologies that may one day allow us to turn barren planets into new Earths.

See 3D printers in action as you discover how this technology may one day build homes on other worlds, then show everybody your vision for the home of tomorrow.

Experience life on a high gravity world, where simple tasks take on new levels of challenge.

Take on the role of a spacefaring cargo pilot and work together to guide a space capsule safely to the planet’s surface.

We've got a range of activities to keep you and the kids busy these school holidays! Check out all of the exhibitions and experiences that'll keep you entertained all day at https://www.motat.nz/events/whats-on-in-january
