NASA – A Human Adventure is the most comprehensive and extensive touring space flight exhibition in the world. The exhibition marshals an extraordinary collection of over 200 historically significant artifacts from the U.S. and Soviet Union space programs. The objects on display in the exhibition are original and space flown objects or high fidelity replicas and scale models.

The exhibition follows the story of space travel. Start with the early dreamers who ignited a passion for travel to the stars, and move on to the brilliant pioneers who took the first brave steps to make trips into space a reality. Study all of their incredible inventions and see how the technology developed. Marvel at the brave astronauts who risked their lives on dangerous missions. We can only imagine the endurance and tenacity all of these gifted people possessed to come up with their countless innovations and carry out the exhausting journeys to success that made each accomplishment possible.
 

Explore the Exhibition

Dreamers

NASA Dreamers
This gallery tells us about the all-important dreamers, the first geniuses to document their great visions about exploring space, which include many writers and artists. The writers were able to create breath-taking stories that often went on to resemble the future of space exploration with astounding accuracy. The artists depicted space in such an inspiring and intriguing way that it sparkled a broader public interest in space travel. Most importantly, these dreamers were instrumental in motivating many gifted people who later went on to make space travel a reality.

Go Fever

NASA Go Fever
In the late 1950s, scientists and politicians in the Soviet Union and the United States competed fiercely to perform firsts in space: to launch the first satellite and send the first human beyond the Earth’s atmosphere. The confrontation between these superpowers, and the 1957 launch of Sputnik, the first man-made object to orbit the earth, resulted in what we now know as the Space Race, an extraordinary timeline of consecutive one-upmanship that produced some of history’s greatest achievements in space.

Pioneers

NASA Pioneers
The Pioneers gallery is dedicated to the genius rocket scientists and engineers who made the ambitious dreams of space travel a reality. Their remarkable technological achievements are truly awe-inspiring. This gallery shows the amazing and swift evolution of rockets: from the first German V-2 all the way to the most powerful launcher ever successfully used, the Saturn V. Get a chance to take a closer look at real rocket engines and a large scale model of Saturn V moon rocket.

Endurance

NASA Endurance
Ever wondered what it is like to be on a space mission? Space is a hostile environment. Space travel requires a great deal of physical and mental endurance, along with no small amount of ingenuity. Moreover, surviving in space requires special equipment and skills. The Endurance gallery gives you the opportunity to check out the high-tech equipment and clothing used and worn by astronauts close up. It also includes special foods eaten on space missions. One of the highlights you will see is the most challenging type of space mission, the Moon landing.

Innovation

NASA Innovation
As the space missions became more daring and lasted longer, new ideas and technologies that required hard-core innovation were required. From the pioneering equipment and space crafts used in the first space flights to complex advanced assemblies like the Space Shuttle and International Space Station. Gallery highlights include Mercury, the first American manned spacecraft; Gemini, that enabled practicing the advanced manoeuvers required for the Moon landings; and Apollo, that carried the first humans to the Moon and back.

G-Force – Astronaut Trainer Ride

Experience gravity as you never have! Take a trip to space and back and have a taste of what it feels like to be an astronaut embarking on your journey out of the Earth’s atmosphere. Let astronaut and test pilot Gus Grissom be your guide as you go on the famous Mercury Liberty Bell 7 flight, the second in a series of successful U.S. manned suborbital flights in 1961.

Last ride admission is at 6.45pm daily.

 
Indonesia Space Science Society (ISSS)

ArtScience Museum presents Indonesia Space Science Society, by Venzha Christ

Working with artists, scientists, astronomers and engineers in Indonesia, Venzha established Indonesia Space Science Society as a framework for the exploration of space from a different perspective. While lacking the means that large space agencies such as NASA have, the Indonesia Space Science Society provides us with a compelling encounter with space nonetheless.
