“Earth in Solar System” // “Ziemia w Układzie Słonecznym”

The exhibition at the Museum of Earth presents our planet within the Solar System – its place and peculiarities with reference to other celestial bodies. The cosmic aspect of the exhibition is presented in two ways: there is a large, colourful poster depicting all of the elements of our planetary system there, and a section dedicated to astroblemes, which are impact craters – extraordinary geological structures created in the result of meteors, comets and planetoids crashing with the Earth. The “earthly” theme is characterized by charts and specimens grouped according to various topics: atmosphere, biosphere, hydrosphere and lithosphere. They are completed with numerous photographs taken in the outer space (mostly by satellites), which additionally emphasizes the cosmic dimension of phenomena taking place on our planet.
