Here in the North East, stargazers love our famous dark skies. But did you know that the world relies on our region’s skills in space tech and engineering too? 


Come with us in Space Zone on a journey to the edge of the universe, starting from right here: Earth.

Check out how we already use space tech in our everyday lives and how you can work in space without even leaving the ground. 
​​​​​​​Then, launch your own rocket and see what it would be like to live on a space station! Finish your journey through Space Zone in the stars, far away from Earth. 

Click on an exhibition area and keep exploring our Universe from home. What would you like to discover first?  


Space: it’s vast and nothing is going on, right? But thousands of satellites are whizzing around in Earth’s orbit, helping us forecast the weather, dodge traffic jams, catch up with TV shows and stay connected.

For every astronaut in orbit and every probe sent to another planet, there is a constellation of people planning, collaborating, thinking and dreaming. Some of the brightest stars in the industry are here in the North East!

Space science today is all about answering big questions. The furthest... the biggest... the oldest... the faintest... the darkest... the deepest... often the best place to study space is right here on Earth. And people in the North East are front-runners in research of truly astronomical value.
