The dream of flying high above the Earth is as old as Humankind. In the 19th century Konstantin Tsiolkowski wrote of how people could orbit the Earth, and by the later half of the 20th century humans were doing so permanently. This stunningly illustrated presentation takes us on a journey from the ground to Earth’s orbit looking at the people and the machines and towards a future when humans will live and work in orbit for most of their lives. Illustrated with images, video, music and models.
