Come for the movie and stay for the exhibit!
Come see the exciting plans that are underway for the next giant leap into space: landing humans on Mars. Journey to Space 3D will take audiences on a behind the scenes tour of the international effort to prepare and send astronauts to Mars within the next 20 years. The film is also an inspiring reflection on the remarkable achievements of NASA’s Space Shuttle program, including the assembly and launch of the International Space Station and the deployment of the Hubble Space Telescope. Missions like these have taught us how to live, build, and conduct science in space and helped to build the foundation for future space exploration.
Journey to Space: The Exhibition’s hands-on exhibits and immersive experiences give you a chance to not only see that amazing technology (including Neil Armstrong’s glove), but to try handling some of the challenges of space travel yourself. Take a turn managing the energy of a simulated orbiting space station, operate a robotic arm, and find out how astronauts eat, sleep, and even go to the bathroom in space. See if you have “the right stuff” to deal with the disorienting environment of zero gravity as you step into a rotating chamber, inspired by the International Space Station’s Destiny Module, and feel what it’s like to be in a place where there is no up and no down. Designed with the help of astronauts and space scientists, Journey to Space: The Exhibition will inspire the astronaut, engineer and scientist in all of us.
