Exploring the Universe

Exploring Space is the place to go for rockets, satellites and landers, Cosmos & Culture for astronomy and particle physics, Hubble 3D and Legend of Apollo for immersive space experiences.

You can meet an astronaut in one of our drama character performances or learn about rockets in Launchpad.

And you might want to see the Apollo 10 command module in Making the Modern World. This tiny capsule was home to three astronauts for eight days as they travelled three quarters of a million miles around the Moon and back. The scorch marks from re-entry will send shivers down your spine.
