Did you know that today marks the 36TH anniversary of the space shuttle Enterprise? Since 2002, more than 220,000 visitors have 'traveled' to the International Space Station in the Science Museum thanks to the interactive module 'Space Academy'. It is an opportunity to see how it might be your first experience as an astronaut, a prototype ship for space missions as was once the Enterprise, which today turns 36 years since its commissioning.

As astronauts in the Science Museum

Space Academy recreates through the movement simulation three stages in the preparation for the space launching until the International Space Station. Guided by the voice and the image of the Spanish astronaut Pedro Duque, visitors cross the space laboratory, the launching elevator and the airlift that allows the access to the space flight simulator.

The trip is made by groups of eight people and lasts about thirty minutes. The price is 2,05 € per session for general public.
