The exhibition 'Out of this World - Wonders of the Solar System', presented by the German Aerospace Center (Deutsches Zentrum für Luft- und Raumfahrt; DLR) and Gasometer Oberhausen GmbH, has been extended until 30 December 2010. More than 300,000 visitors have so far experienced the wonders on show. Following the enormous success of the exhibition, it has been named as a project of RUHR.2010, the European Capital of Culture 2010.

Fascinating pictures of alien worlds and 'the largest moon on Earth'

The 'Out of this World' exhibition shows our Solar System as a huge process of growth and decay and takes visitors on a journey into the cosmos. The highlight is the 25-metre diameter 'largest moon on Earth', which can be seen suspended under the Gasometer's 100-metre high roof. Spectacular reproductions of our planetary system, fascinating images of alien worlds, precious historical instruments and modern space research technology show the audience the drama of the birth and the development of the Solar System.  The displays connect scientific, cultural and historical points of view.
