An immersive, highly interactive exhibition, At Home in Space takes visitors along a 40+ year journey of learning how humans can live and work in space continuously and venture beyond Earth orbit.

At Home in Space presents the challenges and benefits of a permanent human presence in low Earth orbit. The knowledge gained from the Space Shuttle and Space Station programs informs where we go next and what we do there. The ability to launch, construct habitats, and do science and technical experiments changes how we live in space and on Earth. Exploring beyond low Earth orbit requires imagination and ingenuity for the next giant leap for humanity.
