Many passers-by stopped to watch, how first of all the first and than the second ear leaved to the 51 m high tower. They made their way with a working platform that reaches a maximal height of 68 m. Each ear measures 13 m and weights 100 kg. Thanks to their know-how the technical team navigated the ears with the neccessary intuition up to the cupola.

By the way, interested people can learn more about intergalactic relations and the endless outerspace in the public tours by the Urania observatory, every Thursday, Friday and Saturday at 9 pm.
