Second Solar: Massive Spaceship Built for Kids
The German city of Böblingen outside of Stuttgart is giving Area 51 some spaceship competition. The Sensapolis fun park is now home to a gigantic three-level, 9,000 square foot interactive replica of a spaceship.
Second Solar was constructed to immerse children and adults in preparing for a hypothetical visit to a distant solar system to research inhabitable environments. The ship is equipped with giant engines, a thermal shell to protect the crew and landing runners designed to cope with unknown surface conditions.
