Exhibition overview

There’s no other job where you can find yourself quite as far above the Earth as that of an astronaut.

From the Moon landings to the Mars One project, astronauts have become synonymous with adventure, exploration and endeavour. Through hands-on and full-body displays, this revealing science exhibition investigates the reality of what it takes to be a space explorer.

A multitude of exhibits relay the physical and psychological effects of living in microgravity on the human body and the technology used to complete a mission. If you’ve ever wondered what it’s like to sleep, eat, shower and use the toilet in space, Astronaut gives you the opportunity to find out.

The exhibition also focusses on team work to solve problems, accurately perform tasks and overcome challenges such as communicating with mission control, monitoring damage to your space craft or landing a capsule.

Visitors will be captivated and surprised by this absorbing study into the importance of science in space and the future of space exploration.
