    As you approach the National Space Centre from any route into the City you will catch glimpses of the 42 metre high Rocket Tower.

    The iconic Rocket Tower at the National Space Centre is home to Blue Streak and Thor Able rockets, as well as the Gagarin Experience, Apollo Lunar Lander and real Moon Rock.

    The semi-transparent tower, which is clad in high-tech ETFE “pillows”, was designed especially to house the Centre’s largest artefacts.

    Four exhibition decks tell the story of the Space Race, history of rocketry, and Britain's Space Race.
