VOYAGER/DR. MAVRETIČ exhibition by Špela Petrič

We are cordially inviting you to the opening of the Voyager/dr. Mavretič exhibition on Friday 11th October 2013 at 7.30pm in KSEVT.

On 25th of August 2012 NASA has announced that the space probe Voyager 1,  which has traveled the 19.000.000.000 km distance from the Earth, has left our Solar System. On the solar plasma instrument inside the probe, a name is engraved on a golden plate – Anton Mavretič.

The exhibition VOYAGER/DR. MAVRETIČ focuses on the recognition of the work of the space technology engineer dr. Anton Mavretič who has been actively developing space technologies for the past fourty years. Among other things he developed the PLS instrument, which is being used on the space probe Voyager. In cooperation with Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), the Cultural Centre of European Space Technologies (KSEVT) will for the first time in history present the PLS instrument to the world public.

Produced by KSEVT, the exhibition will also include the new artwork VOYAGER/ 140 AU, which questions the last moments in life of
the biggest accomplishment of human civilization.
