The immersive expertise takes place in 4 chapters and helps us higher perceive the astronauts’ objectives and challenges. Pushed by scientific progress and transmission, they’re all seeking solutions: the origin of our universe, the that means of human existence, the potential for dwelling some place else…

With momentary guests (round 1 hour) in area, we’re effectively positioned to thank the technological advances that encourage them. The gesture of supply is gorgeous; From there, they determined to seize photographs of their day by day lives and open a brand new window on the cosmos.
