Astrotrams arrive in Manchester

The past week has seen a number of trams on Manchester Metrolink transformed into Astrotrams as part of the City of Science Festival. Externally the trams don’t look very different with just small window vinyls saying #astrotram but internally it is a different story! The ceilings of the trams have been filled with astronomy facts and interactive triggers and customers who download the free SciMan app can play augmented reality videos, bringing science to life. Passengers at stops have also been treated to intergalactic facts from Professor Brian Cox.
