Here comes the Sun… and an EPIC scale model of our solar system! Our Place in Space is zooming to the historic city of Liverpool this autumn so you can jog to Jupiter, swing by Saturn and dance around the Sun — all without ever leaving Earth.
The 8.1 km scale model of the solar system will animate Liverpool City Centre from 14 October to 6 November 2022. Begin at the Sun on Church Street, make your way along the city’s iconic waterfront and Trans Pennine Trail before finishing in Otterspool where Pluto awaits.
Visit the Our Place in Space for an intergalactic programme of free events in Liverpool as they unfold over the coming weeks.
So, what exactly is Our Place in Space?
Centred around an epic scale model of the solar system designed by the artist Oliver Jeffers with scientist Professor Stephen Smartt and a creative team led by Nerve Centre, Our Place in Space is a three-dimensional sculpture trail, interactive AR app and exciting learning and events programme.
