NASA – A Human Adventure

This 2,000 sqm exhibition included over 400 original items or replicas including space capsules, engines, space suits, telescopes and satellites, many of which had never been shown before.

28 January – 6 November 2011

NASA – A Human Adventure is a touring exhibition that had it’s world premiere at the “Tekniska museet” in Stockholm. The exploration of space was explained through a number of evocative installations, from the first space rocket launches to modern exploration of space beyond our solar system.

The exhibition also contained a G-force simulator, similar to that used by American astronauts when training for the Mercury missions in the 1960s. It makes it possible to experience forces up to 2G, similar to the forces that astronauts experience in a launch and landing of a spacecraft.

After closing on 6 November 2011, the exhibition continued on a tour of Europe and the United States. The National Museum of Science and Technology (Tekniska museet) in Stockholm will probably be the only venue in Scandinavia.

A Human Adventure was produced by John Nurminen Prima in co-operation with NASA, Discovery Channel, The State Museum of the History of Cosmonautics in Moscow, the Kansas Cosmosphere and Space Center, and White Room Artifacts.
