What could possibly be better than a giant spaceship to get kids excited about solar exploration? That's the idea behind the Second Solar spaceship at Sensapolis, designed by Different Futures.

This 9,000-square-foot behemoth is the largest spaceship in the world designed especially for kids. It's located appropriately within Sensapolis, an indoor theme park in Böblingen, Germany. Construction only took three months, and Second Solar was completed in June of 2008.

Second Solar features three-story stainless steel slides, with strobe flashlights throughout the slides' tubes to create good, clean thrills and chills. The team at Different Futures set up a blog for the design portion of Second Solar; you can check it out at the Read More URL below.
