Daily image of the week. To enrich the exhibition of Nebra sky disc at the @DrentsMuseum, ASTRON hosted a stand outside, demonstrating how we explore the universe nowadays, compared to how people did this 3,500 years ago (when the Nebra disc was made).

Op 7 en 14 augustus staan we voor het @DrentsMuseum, dat de #Nebraschijf, een van de oudste sterrenkaarten ter wereld tentoonstelt. ASTRON-onderzoeker @AndreOffringa geeft binnen een lezing en wij doen voor het museum wat leuke proefjes. Hopelijk tot dan!
