|Description:|| On June 22nd the renewed ‘Melkwegpad’ (Milky Way Path) was completed. Jorrit Siebenga and Sjouke Kuindersma placed the last few new signs for this path in Westerbork.|
For the occasion Marco de Vos was interviewed by RTV Drenthe’s Josien Feitsma on location. He explained how the new signs not only provide new information, but also in a less ‘schoolbook’ way: “In the last fifty years we’ve pimped the signs several times, but it was really necessary to come with new texts that give the most current information in a way that engages people the most.”
The new signs have texts in Dutch on the one side and in English on the other side. The signs concerning planets have a small, 3D printed model of that planet in their centre.
