ZERO GRAV­ITY

Where Ottawa - - Hot Attractions -

Ever won­dered how as­tro­nauts get any­thing done when they’re up in space, float­ing around where grav­ity doesn’t ex­ist? Life in Or­bit: The In­ter­na­tional Space Sta­tion can an­swer that ques­tion. The ex­hi­bi­tion cov­ers ev­ery as­pect of an as­tro­naut’s day-to-day life — even the me­chan­ics be­hind space toi­lets! But more than that, the ex­hi­bi­tion looks at how the In­ter­na­tional Space Sta­tion op­er­ates and ex­plains Canada’s role in the im­por­tant work that goes on up there. You can also try on a space hel­met and take a selfie in­side a replica of the space sta­tion’s Cupola. On dis­play at the Canada Avi­a­tion and Space Mu­seum. (p. 46)
