Do ships disappear in the Bermuda Triangle? How is a whirlpool formed? What is a bulbous bow? “Sail or sink”, a new temporary exhibition at the Copernicus Science Centre, will take you on deep waters and show that science can harness them.
Technology allows us to swim on the water surface and under it. We are able to construct submarines, we know how the propeller works and we know how to take out shipwrecks. We have not only managed to harness the element of water but learnt a lot about it and we now take advantage of its potential. At the exhibition, you will have a chance to feel the power of water on your own hand, get acquainted with robots exploring the sea bed and escape from a drowning ship. We will also shape our own underworld and practice some dry diving.
The “Sail or sink” exhibition will open on 18 August.
Admission is included in the ticket to the Copernicus Science Centre.
