Space Science

Man is curious. The difficulties of knowing and understanding phenomena, and the pitfalls entailed, do not discourage people in any way, rather they change their perspective. Even when something is strange, even when it is unknown—indeed, precisely when it is unknown. People also reflect on things that they have no practical experience of. They dream and create.

Mathematics and the sciences that build on it, from physics to space exploration, have turned the world and the space in which we live upside down. A need has emerged to describe the world around us, to assign rules to it, to map it and to understand it better. To do this, new perspectives are needed: unusual approaches, different ways of thinking.

The Science of Space hub celebrates this unusual and original thinking, the world-changing and fascinating achievements of mathematics, the discovery of new lands, the infinite wonders of “taking off”, flight, space exploration and space.

The science of space is also a “playground”. It is a fun world of twisted puzzles, magical games, optical curiosities, where aeroplanes, spaceships and moon rovers are the vehicles, and brilliant Hungarian astronomers, mathematicians, physicists, and biologists are the people who let us explore “space”. Here we can roam among geniuses, dissidents, explorers of new worlds, and have fun exploring their “new, different worlds”.
