The National Museum of Australia presents astronaut Tim Peake speaking about the Space Descent Virtual Reality Experience at the Circa Theatre, Canberra.
Participants get to experience the thrill of being an astronaut. This is done by using the latest 360-degree Virtual Reality technology.
You will be in the pilot’s seat on a 400 kilometre descent to Earth from the International Space Station. This is a breathtaking and awe-inspiring experience produced by the Science Museum Group. British astronaut Tim Peake narrates throughout.
The VR experience takes approximately 30 minutes. Remember to plan your visit during peak times, to allow for parking and for queues.
The National Museum advises that this event is not recommended for children under the age of 13 and people with certain medical conditions. The virtual reality event requires a headset to be worn, and glasses cannot be worn under the headset. The headsets do have a focus control, which can adjust to most, but not all vision types.
The National Museum requests that visitors read the health and safety notice before booking.
Bookings are essential, for the limited availability of tickets, which are $10 each, plus booking fee, through Eventbrite.
