Beginning today, June 10, a new exhibit at the Pacific Science Center in Seattle will put NASA in the spotlight. ‘Destination Station’ will show what it’s like to live on the International Space Station.

During the first week, NASA astronauts will be on hand to talk to the public.

The space station is a multinational research facility and the largest spacecraft ever built. The ISS is an official U.S. National Laboratory where astronauts and scientists from around the world conduct experiments in fundamental life, physical, Earth and space sciences, as well as human health, technologies for space exploration and the improvement of life on Earth.

The exhibit will remain at the Pacific Science Center until Sept. 2, and then move to the Museum of Flight from Sept. 6 through Dec. 4.
