Astronaut class

 

From 9 to 18 years old. Stays of 2 to 5 days. Space activities are supervised by teachers seconded to Euro Space Society by the Ministry for Education, Arts and Letters of the French-speaking Community of Belgium.

Programme

Prepare your students for take-off. Our space mission simulator awaits them. But first, they'll have to take the astronaut training course on our simulators. Science workshops are also planned so that they can build and launch their own rocket. Presentations with films and other documents will teach them the history of space exploration and about daily life and work in space.

Complete programme available on request.

Space mission

Simulation of a space mission with a flight simulator and all of NASA's real procedures. Take-off, orbiting, satellite release, docking with the International Space Station, re-entry in the atmosphere and landing. The mission is preceded by an explanatory briefing about the different roles available.

Multi-axis chair

Astronaut training simulator. The goal is to disorientate potential astronauts. They will have to concentrate to carry out an exercise. The multi-axis chair was developed by NASA after the Gemini missions.

Moonwalk/Marswalk XP

Experience Moon and Mars gravity thanks to virtual reality technology. Our chair will let you experience the challenges of walking on Mars or the Moon. The Oculus Rift mask will immerse you in landscapes that will take your breath away. Get ready for a unique immersion experience!
