With the appearance of a control centre, the News Corner connects you directly with the daily life of the International Space Station (ISS).

WHAT IS LIFE IN ORBIT LIKE?

With the appearance of a control centre, the News Corner connects you directly with the daily life of the International Space Station. You will get the answers to your questions: Who are the astronauts on board? What scientific experiments are being conducted up there? Where is the ISS located?
Welcomed by Thomas Pesquet in person (life-size on a screen), discover life in orbit and find out about the next missions.
You will also understand what experiments are carried out on the International Space Station and how they improve life on Earth.

DID YOU KNOW ? MANDATORY EXERCISE!

In weightlessness, astronauts can move around in the ISS modules with just a flick and move equipment weighing several hundred kilos. This capability leads to significant muscle and bone loss, the demands on the body being less than on Earth. Only solution to stay healthy: exercise and for two hours every day!

On the menu:

  • exercise bike
  • treadmill (with a harness, otherwise you take off!)
  • and weight machines where you pull against springs (lifting weights and dumbbells is useless up there).
