2004년 7월 서울 낙성대에 들어선 ‘과학공원’은 과학 전시물·생태학습관·천문대 등을 통해 과학을 친숙하게 설명하는 체험학습장으로, 공중자전거·다람쥐 펌프·물총놀이를 할 수 있는 놀이공원으로, 산책로를 갖춘 시민들의 쉼터로 역할을 해 왔다.

특히 50㎝ 반사망원경이 설치된 천문대에서는 낮에도 태양과 금성을 관찰할 수 있다. 아르키메데스의 펌프, 태양광 분수, 태양전지 가로등, 광섬유 식물재배 등과 같은 이름의 전시물을 무료로 볼 수 있다.

참고로 남산에 있는 과학전시관은 분관이다. 자세한 내용은 홈페이지 http://www.ssp.re.kr/ 참조

This is an overview of Korea

Korea is one of the oldest continuous civilizations in the world with over five thousand years of history. According to the original creation myth, the world we live in today is the work of the Heavenly Prince Hwanung, whose father was the King of Heaven.

The Heavenly Prince asked his father to give him some land to govern, so the Father sent him down to Mount Taebaek. With him the Prince brought the Minister of Clouds, the Earl of Rain and the Chancellor of Wind. They also brought three thousand helpers.

Under the shade of a sandalwood tree the Prince founded a holy city called Sinsi, the City of God. He put his Ministers in charge of three hundred and sixty areas of human culture, teaching them to grow crops and to make laws concerning what is good and what is evil.

A tiger and a bear living in a nearby cave saw this city and desperately wanted to become human. Every day they came to the sandalwood tree at the center of the city to pray fervently for becoming humans.

Hwanung saw their devotion and gave them instructions to remain in the cave and fast for one month, eating nothing but garlic and mugwort. The tiger was too impatient to stand the long and boring days in the cave, so he gave up and left, but Bear maintained the fast. At the end of the month she was transformed into a beautiful woman who became the mother of the Korean people.

Her first son was Don-gun, the First King of the Korean people. When Don-Gun passed on the throne to his own son, he became a Mountain God. It is interesting that mountain gods are still worshipped today in Korea.
