A specially constructed, Space voyage 2017-themed space truck will tour Finland to celebrate the centenary of Finland’s independence and the Finland 100 satellite.
The tour of the space truck will begin at Otaniemi in Espoo. You can get on board the space truck at four different stops in Espoo. The Kulttuurikontti cultural space of the Espoo City Events will also park at the stops, offering fun activities around robot workshops.
The stops of the space tour in Espoo:
10 am–6 pm
Fri 15 Sep Otaniemi, Alvarin aukio, address: Otakaari 1
Tue 17 Oct Leppävaara, Viaporintori, address: Leppävaarankatu 5
Wed 18 Oct Espoo Centre, Siltatori, address: Kamreerintie 3

The space truck provides fresh information on space and space technology. The truck features simulators that give visitors the chance to experience and see the conditions of space. The truck teaches about the Finland 100 satellite built in Otaniemi and its research into space weather. In the clean room within the truck, a real satellite will also be made but, instead of space, it will only get a taste of the conditions of space in the stratosphere.
Space exhibition, experiential simulators, satellite imagery, information on the Finland 100 satellite, space music, Kulttuurikontti cultural space, robot workshops
The event is organised by the City of Espoo Event and Cultural Services, Finland 100 Espoo.
