Space exhibition

The Space exhibition looks at space and man’s discoveries relating to it. It includes a life-size replica of the forward section of the space shuttle, an early rocket made by the pioneering scientist Robert Goddard, images from the ‘space race’ and an actual Moon rock, on loan from NASA.  Suspended above are satellites and spacecraft, including a giant Saturn V rocket engine and a model of the first artificial satellite, Sputnik-1.

Other displays include a Soviet flight suit, spacecraft emergency equipment and images from the outer reaches of the solar system taken by robotic space probes.
