The Cité de l’espace aims at sharing the space adventure with the general public. In 2014, the temporary exhibit “Extreme Explorations” simultaneously introduces two great ongoing adventures: the Curiosity rover on Mars, and the Rosetta spacecraft.
These missions are both searching for our origins and the beginning of life.
During your visit, check out the scale one motorised model – unique worldwide – of the Curisosity rover currently on Mars.
The Philae lander, scheduled to land on the comet next november, is also shown at scale 1 in movie-like surroundings.
There are many more suprises in store !
This visit is included in the SpaceUp Toulouse schedule.
