About Home Beyond Earth

Imagine living in a place where the night sky is always clear and sparkles with countless stars, and every day the entire world shines outside your windows. Home Beyond Earth is an immersive new exhibition that goes to the heart of the human experience of living in space.

With a focus on space stations past, present and future, Home Beyond Earth features over fifty artifacts, models, space-flown objects and uniforms. Digital tokens allow visitors to make their own journey through the exhibit and personalize their imagined life in a space station of their choice. The exhibit’s vivid digital projections and over a dozen interactive elements help visitors enjoy and realize the dreams and realities of living and working in a place orbiting our planet. Today’s new era of spaceflight promises space hotels, orbiting cities and industrial jobs on the Moon. Home Beyond Earth shows how far we have come to realize this vision, and helps us ponder a future that may, or may not, be for you.

Passports to Space

Every visitor to Home Beyond Earth can choose to receive a “Passport to Space” card to discover what their life could look like on a future space settlement. Digital “Waypoints” allow visitors to create their path by choosing a space station to live in, discover how their personal interests lead to jobs needed on future space stations, and finally, see the ambitions and concerns shared between different communities as the space settlement evolves.

The Waypoints are touchscreen-based informative digital experiences. They are also touch points for the Passports and visitors’ interactive experience through the exhibit.
