The European contribution to the International Space Station (ISS) was built at the Airbus. The ISS is in orbit some 400 kilometres above Earth, so delivering supplies is a real challenge for engineers: how does water and food get to the astronauts? How do people live, sleep, and carry out research in zero gravity? Once you step inside our replica of the Columbus module, expert guides will provide you with the answers to these and other fascinating questions. The 1:1 scale model of the Columbus space laboratory is open to visitors. And take a look at the simulation and diagnosis room, where the engineers on the ground maintain conact with the International Space Station. And do you know how much a litre of milk weighs on the moon or on Saturn or Venus?
