Following the exploration of flight to discover the myth of space, the Space Dreams hall enables visitors to experience the fun of flight and the mystery of the universe, learn aerospace knowledge, manned space flight program. It aims to encourage the youth to study the cutting-edge technology, keep an eye on the immense universe, and explore the future of human being.

The hall has three sub-areas:

Challenge the Sky

It showcases the aerostatic technology that makes people fly in the sky freely, such as the basic principle of aviation, design and structure of aerostatic engine, aerostatic materials and reliability, control of engine as well as navigation and traffic control on air.

Fly to the Space

With the background of aviation development of human and China, it introduce the spaceflight knowledge like its principle of launch and flying, and engineering program of manned spaceship.

Expiration in the Universe

It displays what knowledge human being have comprehended, such as solar system, galaxy and extragalactic system, causing audiences' interest in space mystery and its resource exploration.

Other exhibits include:


Spacesuits

Spacesuits

Spacesuits are the equipment for astronauts of manned space flight, including extravehicular activity spacesuits and intravehicular activity spacesuits. There are two exhibits, one is the real one and the other one is a replica that could be tried by visitors for photos taking.


3D Roller

3D Roller

3D roller takes physical fitness training equipments in manned space flight as the prototype to simulate how to be out of control in the spacecraft due to malfunction, and the astronauts' adaptability in case of two or three degrees of freedoms of rotation.

Visitors can experience how the astronauts work in the space and learn about their working conditions in the space.

Electric Swivel Chair

It is a copy of the multifunctional automatic rotary chair for the training for astronauts, but with a smaller rotating speed and swinging scope. It takes the consideration of ordinary people and decreases the rotating speed and swinging scope. Visitors might feel different reaction on their vestibule.


Jumping on the Moon

Jumping on the Moon

Visitors can slide along the track when lying on a lounge chair and pushing by feet. The whole process of "jumping" will be recorded and transmitted to the large screen at the front end. Visitors can watch it and see how "high" they jump on the "moon."


The Command and Control Center of Aerospace Launch



The Command and Control Center of Aerospace Launch

The moment of Shenzhou spacecraft flying up to the sky is amazing. However, do you have any idea about the necessary preparation before blasting off? What shall the spacecraft do before reaching the outer space? How do the astronauts in the spacecraft coordinate with the ground controller? You can experience the whole launching process right here.
