Event details

Be inspired by the wonders of the Universe and how space exploration impacts our everyday lives.


It’s easy to forget we live on a spinning rock that is whizzing through space. The new Space Zone brings space close to home: find out how we’re already using space technology in our everyday lives and discover how the future of space exploration is being shaped right here in the north east of England.

Highlights include:

  • Launch your own rocket.
  • Climb inside a mock-up model of part of the International Space Station.
  • Watch shows on a digital globe displaying Earth, Moon and planetary satellite imagery.
  • Touch a genuine Moon rock.

Plus, check out the biggest planetarium in the north of England that features a variety of shows, including a presenter-led tour of the night sky.

Space Zone has been supported through the Inspiring Science Fund. The scheme is co-funded by the Department for Business, Energy & Industrial Strategy (BEIS), UK Research and Innovation (UKRI) and Wellcome. 
​​​​​​​

Additional support has been provided by The Garfield Weston Foundation, the Catherine Cookson Charitable Trust and the UK Space Agency.
