If you're into all things outer space, you really don't want to miss out on the "NASA: A Human Adventure" that's taking place from November 19 to March 19, 2017 at Singapore's ArtScience Musuem. Filled with over 200 artifacts on display, with some having left the planet, the exhibition takes you on a journey to the moon and back. Tickets cost $20 (about $14, £11 and AU$19) and it's worth it, as you get to see a full scale construction of the front section of NASA's Space Shuttle Atlantis.
In 1961, US President John F Kennedy gave a speech to Congress about putting a man on the moon, leading to the Apollo missions. Unfortunately, Kennedy never got to see the actual landing that took place in 1969, as he was assassinated two and a half years after the speech.
The Jupiter nose cone shown here featured an ablative ceramic shield, allowing it to survive re-entry into the Earth's atmosphere without burning up. Monkeys and mice were sent into space inside these nose cones.
There's also a 1:10 scale replica of the Saturn V, which was made to support the Apollo program. The rocket was used to launch Skylab, the first American space station, as well as send over 24 humans to the moon. NASA spent $6.5 billion (or about $47 billion present day) from 1964 to 1973 to develop and launch these expensive rockets into space.
America was not the only country to check out the moon. The Soviet Union launched remote-controlled lunar rovers, the Lunokhod 1 and 2 (pictured). The rover weighed 840kg and was designed to assess ambient light levels, take pictures of the moon's surface, observe solar x-rays among other things.
Doing your business in space can be tricky, hence the Apollo Defecation Collection Device (left) and the Space Shuttle Maximum Absorbency Garment (MAG), given to each crew member and used during lift-off and re-entry. There was also a spare if a second re-entry attempt was needed.
Seen here is a replica of Project Gemini, NASA's second human spaceflight program used in 1965. Extra-vehicular activities (EVA) were performed in space as well and helped NASA figure out space travel techniques.
If you're feeling adventurous, you can also hop on board this gravity simulator, which takes you up to 2Gs as you experience a launch and re-entry. Not recommended for the faint of heart, and you may get nauseous from the experience. The gravity simulator will cost up to an extra $6 per ride depending on the day of the week you're riding it.
