This exhibition at the Magma Arts and Conference Centre is aimed at popularising the scientific culture and reaching out to youths by showing the space technology used at the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA). Life in Space: The Exhibition was launched in 2019 by NASA and the U.S. Space & Rocket Center, with the support of the European Space Agency (ESA), the Agenzia Spaziale Italiana (ASI) and other institutions. Since then, this international travelling exhibition has been to 12 countries, drawing more than 4 million visitors.

More than 80 exhibits to delve into the history of human endeavour in space: spacecraft, space stations, pieces and models of satellites, original particles delivered from cosmic space, moon rocks, suits and accessories, and many other items to follow in the footsteps of scientists, technicians and astronauts. The exhibition includes two special attractions: Space Adventure, an interactive area for both the body and the mind, and Space Camp, a simulator where visitors can feel what astronauts feel when coming back from a space mission.
