Space Simulator

Spaceflight Simulator

Using our custom-built spaceflight simulator you can visit planets and moons in our solar system, then travel to the outer reaches of the galaxy and beyond. Fly through the rings of Saturn or see what happens when a star gets too close to a black hole.

Travel back in time to follow historic space missions, then leap into the future to see where space flight might be heading.

Fun and very educational for all ages and abilities.
