Space Agency Tour
December 4 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm
Enjoy a FREE tour, every Wednesday at 11:00, of the South African National Space Agency in Hospital Street, Hermanus.
There is a play area at the end of the tour with interactive displays, which both children and adults enjoy. The tour itself is not suitable for very young children.
The primary function of SANSA is the forecasting of "space weather". Solar activity is monitored as this can have serious implications for satellites, the power grid, aviation and military communications and even cellular communications. The SANSA center in Hermanus performs this forecast service for all of Africa and also tracks objects passing in orbit above Africa.
