The Sun. Living With Our StarExhibitions, Science and innovation
03/22/2022 - 01/08/2023

The Sun, our star, the one that makes life on Earth possible, is the main protagonist of this exhibition at CosmoCaixa Barcelona. With more than a hundred historical and contemporary pieces, from ancient observation instruments such as a 16th-century armillary sphere and an Islamic astrolabe to electromechanical modules, prototypes of nuclear reactors and solar energy collectors, the exhibition invites visitors to discover the secrets of the Sun and its fascinating history in relation to mankind. The exhibition is divided into four main sections: measuring the passage of time by means of the apparent movements of the Sun, harnessing the Sun's energy, the relationship between the Sun and our health and, finally, the study of the Sun from an astrophysical point of view. A journey that will show us how far we have come in our knowledge of this star.
