The first 3D Dome Show in Hong Kong

Putting on a cumbersome spacesuit, stepping into the command module, settling on a tailor-made seat and waiting for the moment when the rocket launches into the skyˇK. Many people may have fancied themselves becoming an astronaut, taking a venturous ride in a spacecraft into the vast universe and exploring the unknown world for mankind.

To become an astronaut, one must undergo a series of tough training. For instance, one has to experience situations of weightlessness and immense gravity. Space is full of risks and hazards. Without the natural protection of the atmosphere, the astronaut is exposed to all kinds of dangers that he would not encounter on the Earth. Extreme variation in temperature, meteorite strike, and exposure to hazardous cosmic rays are just a few to name. What is more, there is microgravity that will affect bones, muscles and the cardiovascular system. Hence, an astronaut must have protection from a spacesuit and sound psychological health condition and physical training so as to brace himself for all kinds of challenges in space.

The new 3D Dome Show ˇ§Astronaut 3Dˇ¨ will teach you how to become an astronaut, joining the trainings of an astronaut: to dive into water to simulate training in space, to jump on a plane to experience weightlessness, and to ride on a huge centrifuge to feel immense gravity. You will also see all kinds of risks and challenges that astronauts face. Wearing a pair of special 3D glasses, you will enjoy the unprecedented 3D thrill under the unique, huge hemispheric dome of the Hong Kong Space Museum.

In the microgravity environment of space, astronauts will suffer from muscular atrophy and brittle bones disease. Hence, they must do physical exercise every day to keep strong.

The NASA space shuttles have operated for 30 years and carried 355 astronauts 
from 16 different countries to space.

The Neutral Buoyancy Training Tank is a deep training pool. It contains spacecraft models and provides an underwater environment of weightlessness, in which astronauts may perform simulated tasks for upcoming missions.

The International Space Station is a joint project among multinational space agencies.
It provides microgravity and other space effects for carrying out innovative expeeriments.

Astronauts need to put on special spacesuits in order to carry out
extra-vehicular activities outside the spacecraft.
