Life in Orbit: The International Space Station
This exhibition was developed in partnership with the Canada Aviation and Space Museum in Ottawa. It allows you to experience daily life on board the International Space Station (ISS).
How does the ISS stay in space without falling back to Earth? What's it like to live and work in space? Find the answers to all these questions by seeing what the astronauts themselves have seen on board!
The exhibition's various components enable you to:
- find out what kind of food is allowed on the ISS;
- see how astronauts use the washroom in space;
- have an immersive Earth observation experience in a replica of the Cupola;
- take the controls of Canadarm2;
- perform manual tasks while wearing pressurized gloves;
- see a spacesuit;
- learn how microgravity affects astronauts' bodies.
