Vitanje, a small rural village, hidden between Vitanje Karavanke and Pohorje, hides a futuristic object, designed according to the Herman Potočnik's idea of Space Station, the Noordung Center, which takes you to the world of infinity.
Who or what is Noordung?
Herman Potočnik Noordung, who is connected with Vitanje via maternal roots, was a futurist, rocket engineer and pioneer of astronautics and cosmonautics. In 1929 he wrote a book The Problem of Space Traveling - a Rocket Engine (Problem vožnje po Vesolju – Raketni motor), which greatly inspired the modern space engineers to develop space-travel technologies.
The Center of Space Technology: even and especially for the amateurs!
The Noordung Center promotes space technologies and human achievements in space. Virtual reality, simulators and projections are complex technologies that offer effective insight into the mysteries of the infinite universe. The Noordung Center is also a great learning space for children about experiences in space.
