Play Space: Zero Gravity Space Lab

What’s it like to live and work in the weightless environment of space? What do astronauts eat? How do they sleep? And how do they go to the bathroom?

Find out all the answers in the Space exhibition, now more exciting than ever with new displays and a new installation, the Zero Gravity Space Lab where you can experience the illusion of weightlessness.

The Space Lab is the highlight of the ‘Living and working in space’ section where Australian astronaut Dr Andy Thomas and his wife and fellow astronaut Dr Shannon Walker guide you through a visit to the International Space Station (ISS).
