Guided Space TourFees are subject to applicable VAT. Experience space travel at close hand! Bremen is one of Europe's leading centres for space travel. The European contribution to the International Space Station (ISS), for example, was assembled at Airbus Defence & Space. The ISS is in orbit some 400 kilometers above Earth, so delivering supplies is a real challenge for engineers. How does water and food get to the astronauts? How do people live, sleep, and carry out research in zero gravity? Answers to these and other questions are provided in a replica of the Columbus module. You can also see parts being constructed for the Ariane 5 rocket that launches satellites into orbit, and find out how much a liter of milk weighs on the surface of the moon. Duration: approx. 2 hours
