“Neighbourhood Earth is its name and it’s presented by M Live and powered by NASA with cutting-edge science and the latest technology. Wonderful visuals with a simulated space sim tell the story of space science and exploration like the majority of us have never seen before. Exhibition visitors can expect to travel across the solar system, getting up close and personal with the surface of Jupiter, marvelling at Martian sunsets and experiencing electric thrills with lightning storms on Venus. The dome of the main set piece transports you into space together with the epic cinematic environment and the displays of spacecraft models, tools and astronaut suits will have you learning facts and achievements behind space exploration, as well as wondering the possibilities of where space travel is headed.”
