Gaze at the aftermath of a massive star's explosion in the Large Magellanic Cloud, a nearby galaxy. The surrounding bright gas clouds are a perfect breeding ground for new stars.
Your mission is to pilot the Rocket Chair to the flashing targets on time. What's the catch? Newton's Third Law: For every action there is an equal and opposite reaction.
Can you launch Cassini to Saturn and make it ring? The trick is to fly your craft past Venus at the right distance and angle so it surfs the planet's gravitational field – just like real spacecraft do!
Examine this 1:24 scale model of the only telescope ever designed to be serviced in space. Orbiting 559 km above Earth, Hubble lets us peer into galaxies billions of light-years away.
Future Space Food
These plants aren't really purple! They're cultivated in soil-free conditions under red and blue LED lights that speed growth. Gardening in space means no soil, no sunlight and limited, um, space.
What can scientists learn from a little piece of the Moon? Similar to Hawaii's volcanic rocks, this Moon rock is coarse-grained basalt, likely part of a lunar lava flow later fragmented by meteorite impacts.
Look closely to see vapour trails left by cosmic rays from space as they bombard Earth and everything on it – including you! Cosmic rays are really atomic nuclei, electrons, positrons and other subatomic particles.
Space Shuttle Orbiter Columbia
It blasts off like a rocket, looks like a plane, and orbits as a scientific research station. See how it all works with this 1:15 scale model of Columbia, which launched NASA's 30-year Space Shuttle program.
Zeiss ZKP-1 Planetarium
Until 2008, this projector provided millions of visitors with pristine views of the night sky in our domed planetarium. To take a trip through space with our new digital system, check out our current Planetarium.
