Ignite your curiosity about space travel and be inspired by the triumphant milestones in human space exploration with ArtScience Museum’s upcoming blockbuster exhibition, NASA – A Human Adventure. Opening on 19 November, the show will be the largest space flight exhibition ever to be held in Singapore, with over 200 historically significant artefacts on display including items which have flown in space.
The exhibition tells the inspiring story of the National Aeronautics and Space Administration’s (NASA) huge achievements in space flights and exploration, from the time the first space rocket was launched to the latest accomplishments in manned space flights. Visitors can get up-close with the extraordinary spacecraft that NASA has developed, and discover the stories of the people who flew them. Amongst many incredible highlights, the show presents exhibits on the gigantic Saturn V Moon Rocket, full-size models of the pioneering Mercury spacecraft, the Apollo Command Module that carried the first humans to the Moon, the Rover astronauts used to explore the Moon, and a full-size model of the front section of NASA’s iconic Space Shuttle.
The exploration of space is an astonishing human story. NASA – A Human Adventure shows the spirit and fortitude involved in surviving in space, and reflects on the sacrifices of the men and women whose own journeys into space ended in tragedy.
The exhibition also shows that space exploration has always been an international endeavour, and how the Space Race grew out of the rivalry between the United States and the Soviet Union. Through the presentation of modern achievements, such as the development of the International Space Station, the show reveals how space now brings countries and cultures together.
Produced by John Nurminen Events B.V. the exhibition made its world premiere at Tekniska Museet (The National Museum of Science and Technology) in Stockholm, Sweden in 2011. Since then, it has travelled to Madrid, Istanbul, Tokyo, Bangkok, Seoul and Taipei, among others. Singapore is the next stop.
