About this Event

An interactive demonstration by the National Space Centre of the power of pressure (or lack of in space), and how pressure suits keep astronauts alive.

This table-top demo includes a genuine pressure suit used by Soviet high-altitude pilots that was the ancestor for the Sokol suits that all astronauts wear today during launch and landing.

Free drop-in demonstration in support of the 'Poetic Impossibility to Manage the Infinite' exhibition. Suitable for children.
