Centrum Nauki Kopernik
Copernicus Science Centre
#About the Warsaw Science Museum

The Copernicus Science Centre (Centrum Nauki Kopernik) is a science museum that tries to connect science and culture, art and philosophy. The museum's stated goal is to stimulate the curiosity of its visitors, to encourage thinking and to stimulate cultural discussion, specifically in the fields of science and human knowledge.

All these are produced in the museum through innovative technology, interactive and inviting exhibitions, lectures, workshops and activities for different ages. Visitors can learn the laws of nature through experiments and interactive displays.

The Copernicus Science Centre was named after the genius of Polish astronomy, Nicolaus Copernicus, the man who thanks to him, the world understood that the Earth was not the center of the universe, as the Church had claimed until then, and imposed its opinion on scientists, but that the Earth was one of the planets orbiting the sun.



#Who was Copernicus?

Nicolaus Copernicus was an astronomer, mathematician, economist and Polish priest. He was the first in history to present a scientific theory that Earth and the rest of the planets revolve around the sun, so that the Earth is not the center of the universe. Which was the sentiment that humans have expressed since the days of ancient Greece. He formulated his theory in a profound and scientific way and in effect opened the whole modern scientific revolution.

It is important to know that Copernicus' official functions were as a clergyman, governor, jurist, astrologer, and physician, while astronomy was a hobby and side-work for him.

His theory of the centrality of the sun in what the solar system will follow is undoubtedly one of the most important discoveries in history and has influenced many other areas of human history.

Copernicus's theory is called the Heliocentric Theory, which places the sun at the center of the solar system and the Earth as an environment. This theory contradicted the prevailing geocentric approach, which placed the Earth at the center of the universe and a version of the planets and the sun that surrounded us.

Fortunately for Copernicus, the resourcefulness of the owner of the printing house that printed his book saved him. He added a brief introduction, which indicated that Copernicus's theory is merely a mathematical tool for calculating the motion of the celestial bodies. Thanks to this fact, the Church approved the publication of his book and did not view it as challenging to God. In this way, Copernicus was saved from a difficult fate that was given to those who thought differently from the dominant religious approach, according to what the center of the universe was.

The British Museum
The British Museum
#About the Historical Museum of England

The British Museum is acknowledged as one of the largest and most famous in the world. Founded in 1753 by a scientist and physicist named Sir Hans Sloan, it is located in the Bloomsbury neighborhood of Camden. The museum was opened to the general public in 1759. Over 6 million items are distributed throughout the museum representing the development of the human race from prehistory to the present, from different cultures.

This large building includes a combination of Grecian style architecture (the entrance plaza) and an indoor courtyard with a glass dome, which is by far the largest in Europe.

More than 5 million visitors arrive each year to the museum. Initially it was designed for a more general display and not primarily antiques. Approximately 40,000 books, texts, stuffed animals, fossils, engravings and antiques were found in the first collection donated to the museum by Sloan. Over the years, the museum served as a showroom, mainly for archeological and cultural exhibits. The museum's exhibits are divided into complexes, each relating to a different continent - from Africa and Asia to South America and Australia.

Entrance to permanent exhibitions in the museum is free. This is because there is an ongoing debate today over the ownership of the items displayed at the museum. Many items date back to the expansion of the British Empire and therefore the Museum's right to hold them was not agreed upon. On there behalf, the British claim that the items will be kept in in good condition and anyone will be allowed to come and enjoy them. In addition, British law does not allow the return of the exhibits. The Egyptian and Greek antiquities collection, for example, is one of the largest in the world. It also contains remains from the Parthenon in Athens. Therefore, some governments, like Greece and Nigeria are still fighting for the right to receive the remains for display in their respective museums.



#The History of the Museum

The purpose of the British Parliament in building the museum in 1753
was very simple: to allow citizens to discover the whole world in one building. This is one of the few buildings in the world that really makes it possible to learn and think about the whole world under one roof!

In 1750, the museum was actually a library of Gentleman's House, where visitors were able to draw, print and read the about the world. At the entrance, a visitor would receive a ticket from the library, that was also an entrance ticket to the museum. This way, a visitor would receive invitations to view the various collections presented at the museum. The idea of showing these collections to the commoners whenever they pleased was truly revolutionary at the time.

The new idea of allowing commoners to enter and behold collections in 1815, after Napoleon’s time, was truly a game-changer. The original building was replaced by the new building you see today. The museum is open to everyone today and all the collections are exhibited there. By the way, children were not allowed to enter the museum at all. This was due to the damage they caused to the stuffed animals when they got excited. The children returned to the museum as soon as the stuffed animals were transferred to the Natural History Museum. Today, by the way, children also visit there and do not inflict any real damage ...

A big change occurred in 1851. That same year, a fine exhibition was presented at the museum, and for the first time, a large number of tourists, lovers of art and culture, arrived. It was a huge success for museum in London, which became particularly popular. To this day there is an unimaginable amount of people in line, waiting to see the items in the museum, which are increasing continually in number.



#A Museum for Visitors

The museum's approach to visitors and tourists has been a special one since the early days of the museum. The founders wanted to allow people access to the objects, to think about them and discuss them, to paint them, to admire them or to swing by them – whatever they chose. The approach is that the collection is a private collection belonging to all citizens who can come and use it as they please and not a royal collection that is only intended for them.

The building you know is well suited to the large number of visitors who come here, but museum directors continue to devise new ways to give visitors better access to the collections available. Therefor the building has indeed undergone all sorts of changes over the years.

The visitors, then, do not come to the museum only to view the items of any given collection. They especially enjoy having lunch on the broad steps. In recent years, museum directors have been thinking about how to rethink the museum building in order to continue to achieve its original goal.



#About the Historical Museum of England

The British Museum underwent several architectural changes over the years. Its core, the oldest part, to date, was designed by the architect Sir Robert Smirke in 1823.

The large, modern courtyard, named after Queen Elizabeth II, was designed by Foster & Co. Architects. The courtyard was first opened to the public in 2000 and is the largest indoor courtyard in Europe. The magnificent ceiling of this courtyard is made up of no less than 3,000 transparent panels that form the harmonious and wondrous shape of the building. The waves, incidentally, are not symmetrical and the size of the panels is uneven. Also note the amount of light in the indoor yard - it is not as bright as the natural light outside – there is special material wrapping the panels, allowing only part of the light to sift through which created a special atmosphere and lighting inside.

Asteroskopeio Observatory
#About the Observatory of the City of Athens

The National Observatory of Athens (Asteroskopeio Observatory) was built in 1842 on Nymphaea Hill, right at the place where virgins would pray to the gods. The observatory was planned by the architect Theophil Hansen, and built after receiving permission to build from the Turkish authorities that ruled the city and the area back then.

The observatory is considered a paving stone for Athens. It is located across from the Parthenon in the Acropolis, and was used for astronomical and metrological research in Greece. Today the observatory includes the astronomical museum of the city. Displayed here for the wider audience are an astronomical clock, telescope, a library, and tools used by astronomers in the 19th century.

The new observatory replaced the ancient observatory that was built in the city in the 5th century, in a straight line with the metrological tower called the Tower of the Winds, and is located in the area of the metro stop Heliotropion, whose name means "Turned towards the sun."

Leonardo da Vinci was perhaps the greatest artist and inventor of all time. This is a man who dealt in a variety of fields and in all of them he excelled in brilliance. There has not been a man in human history who has so wondrously explored, created, discovered and planned like Leonardo da Vinci. He believed that art, science, and nature were closely linked.

That is also how he managed his time. In his life, Leonardo worked in various fields and emerged as a painter, sculptor, scientist, engineer, mathematician, anatomist, inventor, architect and also an outstanding musician. Many see Leonardo as a classic Renaissance man, dealing with a variety of areas, and not only one.

As an inventor, he invented and came up with innumerable inventions, most of them, revolutionary to his time and ahead of their time by hundreds of years. These include inventions such as a bicycle, helicopter, submarine, parachute, tank, flying machine, water skiing equipment, diving suit, mechanical knight, a drum that plays alone and many more.

At the same time, many see Leonardo as one of the greatest painters in art history. He painted barely 20 paintings but left a remarkable legacy in the history of painting and the most famous paintings in history. The most prominent of these is, of course, the Mona Lisa, the most important and famous painting in the world, which is located in the Louvre Museum in Paris. The "Last Supper," Leonardo's painting on the wall of the dining room of a convent in Milan, was also considered one of the most important artistic pearls of the Renaissance.

By the way, Leonardo da Vinci’s last name was not an ordinary surname, but a link to the city where he grew up: Leonardo from the city of Vinci.

Griffith Observatory
#About Los Angeles' Observatory and Planetarium

On a green hill, overlooking Hollywood from high up, and the stars from below, is Griffith Observatory, located on the top part of Griffith Park. With over one million visitors each year, this is the most visited observatory in the world.

Griffith Observatory will take you on an exciting adventure to the solar system and around the whole world. The round, white building can be seen from different points in Los Angeles, and on the weekends gets really crowded.

The observatory was built in Griffith Park by Colonel and astronomy enthusiast, Griffith Jenkins Griffith. His dream was to make the stars reachable for everyone, and not only scientists. This is the reason the entrance to the observatory is free, and has been this way since its establishment in 1935. Griffith's donation money ensure that the entire park around the observation would be named after him. About 10 years ago, the building was renovated at a cost of about $35 million.

In 2006, after renovations that cost about $93 million that lasted 4 years, the observatory was re-opened, with a sophisticated planetarium and small theater, a Foucault pendulum, and fantastic telescope, theater, and more. In the galleries there are scientific exhibits that help understand the sky, solar system, and earth.

In the great musical "La La Land," the famous observatory was one of the most prominent and beautiful locations for the shootings, where the romantic couple spent time. It has been commemorated in many movies, and it even has a monument for the actor James Dean, who filmed here a famous knife fight scene in his famous movie, "Rebel Without a Cause." Besides looking at the sky and stars, the observatory is a great place to look over the Hollywood Sign, as well as a viewpoint for all of Los Angeles.
