Tour of the multimedia exhibition.

Practice on three astronaut training simulators:

  • Multi-axis chair: a simulator that creates the kind of disorientation you may experience in space.
  • Moonwalk/Marswalk XP chairs: Moon and Mars walk simulators with a virtual reality mask
  • Rotating chair: the chair spins on a single axis to reproduce feelings of disorientation and vertigo.

Micro rocket workshop: build and launch your own rocket.

Multi-axis chair

Simulates the disorientation that may be experienced in a space capsule. The multi-axis chair is standard training for astronauts.

Rotating chair

This simulator turns on a single axis to reproduce the sensation of vertigo. The rotating chair trains astronauts to deal with space sickness.

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!
