From rockets to satellites, probes to landers, this gallery showcases some out-of-this world objects. Explore how we’ve sent spacecraft to other planets, walked on the Moon and peered into the heart of our galaxy and beyond. You’ll be able to see a full-sized replica of ‘Eagle’ – the lander that took astronauts Armstrong and Aldrin to the Moon in 1969. Then discover how we are able to live in space – to breathe, eat, drink and go to the toilet. Get a unique insight into the history of rockets. Suspended from the ceiling are two real space rockets – a British Black Arrow and a United States Scout. You can also find out how the space age started in 1957 with the launch of Sputnik 1. See a full-size replica of the Huygens module that landed on Titan in 2005 and a model of the Beagle 2 Mars lander. Visit this gallery to learn the astonishing story of space exploration.
