At Spaceship Aurora you can experience a virtual trip into space, learn more about / get to know more about the Northern Lights, get more knowledge of the origin and effect on our planet, and how the Northern lights are reflected in Norwegian history and culture. You will take part in scientific experiments, launch virtual probes and get an impression of how the day-to-day life is like at a Space Center. The Spaceship offers activities for all age groups. A Mission Commander will guide you and your group through the Aurora mission. We can also offer fun souvenirs at our Space Shop.
In our new auditorium, we show a widescreen film about the Northern Lights and research-history up to recent days / today. The center also offers exciting exhibitions about the Northen Lights and Norway as a space nation.
Spaceship Aurora is located at Andøya Space Center. At Andøya Space Center research rockets (sounding rockets) are launched into space here at Andøya Space Center several times a year. The Space Center also launches balloons, from small weather balloons to enormous circumpolar research balloons.
