located at Andøya Space Center. Since 1962, we have launched over thousand rockets into space. This make Andøya Space Center a unique operating Space Center in Europe.

You will take part in a virtual and exciting mission in the near space. Pilots, navigators, and scientists

have to work together to solve the same scientific- and engineering problems that meet real astronauts.

The Spaceship offers activities for all age groups. A Mission Commander will guide you and your crew through the mission. We can also offer fun and educational souvenirs from our Space Shop.

In the summer of 2016 we are launching new exciting educational experiments and 3D films on big screen in the visitor center. Fun and cool physics experiments for all ages related to technology, space, space physics and physics.

  • Crazy overpriced. Over 200 NOK for couple of info screens and a 20 min movie. Nothing that you could not find by a bit of googling or watching YouTube for free. Not meant for adults, and not much for children either. I was expecting to see and learn about space technology but there were nearly none. They seriously need to ramp up their game to justify the price. I would have been a bit disappointed even if this was free.
