Take a giant leap for humankind as you explore the wonders of spaceflight through a live, guided tour of our Space Exhibition. Accompanied by exciting space-themed music, this Mission Commander-led tour will see learners transformed into Powerhouse Space Cadets as they learn about rocketry, orbit, gravity, and (most importantly) how to use a space toilet! The tour begins with a glimpse of humans’ earliest rockets, before leading cadets through a replica space shuttle and a habitation module where they will see where astronauts eat, bathe and sleep. Cadets will then step into a Zero Gravity Space Lab where they will experience the illusion of weightlessness – they may even feel space sick!
