The Cité de l’espace is a center of scientific culture oriented towards space and the conquest of space, devoted to both astronomy and astronautics. It is also equipped with numerous exhibitions, often interactive: for example, the control room allows you to prepare the launch of a rocket, to watch its take-off, its flight and then the placing in orbit of a satellite. A real immersion in space.
