Space Place, run by the UW Astronomy Department's Space Astronomy Lab, encourages the public to learn about space exploration and research. It houses a variety of exhibits and is the home of WUPPE, the Wisconsin Ultraviolet Photo Polarimeter Experiment, a telescope that flew twice on the space shuttle. There is also a Teacher's Resource Room with free educational materials and a gift shop.
Space Place is open to the public only during scheduled events. Group workshops may be held by appointment.
Events at Space Place include guest presentations, family workshops, and other scheduled and special events.
