The exploration of space is the greatest endeavor that humankind has ever undertaken. What does it take to be part of this incredible journey? What does it take to become an astronaut?

"Astronaut," the latest immersive planetarium show to be created by the National Space Centre, takes you from Earth into space... and beyond. Experience a rocket launch from inside the body of an astronaut. Explore the amazing worlds of inner and outer space, from floating around the International Space Station to maneuvering through microscopic regions of the human body. Discover the perils that lurk in space as we subject 'Chad', our test astronaut, to everything that space has to throw at him. 

Presented in stunning high definition 360-degree full-dome video and explosive surround sound, Astronaut is an experience like nothing on Earth. 

"Astronaut" is preceded by an Apollo 11 tribute show. "Astronaut" is supported by: NASA NY Space Grant, Department of Physics & Astronomy, C.O.V.E., the Upstate Institute, and the Department of Biology.
