ABOUT THE EXHIBITION

The Cosmos Discovery exhibition documents the development of piloted space travels from the beginning until today. It contains over 200 original exhibits from the US and the Soviet Union, genuine rockets and space shuttles, as well as unique documents of their time.

Visitors of the exhibition can see Russian Sputnik, Laika and Gagarin. American lunar programme Apollo and Russian Lunokhod programme are also exhibited. As well as a large model of the American rocket Saturn, a part of the Houston control center and the original Russian Soyuz ship. The variety of exhibited space suits is also remarkable. Most of the attention is always paid to the original exhibits from real space flights. Experts will appreciate the original F1 engine from the American Saturn 5 rocket, which carried Apollo spaceship to the Moon.

Thanks to the Cosmos Discovery exhibition, the engine has left the US for the first time. The most recent exhibit of Cosmos Discovery is the walk-through model of the Russian orbit station MIR, in which zero gravity environment is visually induced.

3OF THE MOST INTERESTING EXHIBITS

  • Unique authentic experience for every visitor. You can enter the MIR orbit station and look through a part of its living area including the facilities. Thanks to optical illusion, a state of zero gravity is induced, with spatial orientation being aggravated.
  • Original nozzle of the F1 engine This nozzle was dropped after launching the Saturn V rocket, which carried the Apollo crew to the Moon. The nozzle hit the bottom of the Atlantic Ocean, where it was collected several years later. It has crossed the US border for the first time for the Cosmos Discovery exhibition. Unique alloy of materials that is resistant to the iron-melting heat of the engine is still part of top secret technological know-how of NASA and the US government.
  • Apollo 11 landing module 1:1 model including indoor equipment will surprise visitors with its fragility and small size. The heroes of the Apollo missions were separated from cosmic space only by a few centimeters of metal alloy and their computers were about as powerful as today's calculators. Despite that they managed to land on the Moon, complete difficult research tasks there, and above all, get back to Earth.

IN THE CZECH REPUBLIC FOR THE FIRST TIME

The Cosmos Discovery World Exhibition was established in 2016 and premiered in Bratislava. After that it traveled to Lisbon, followed by Rome. In its expanded form, it will be presented at the at the BVV Trade Fairs Brno for the 40th anniversary of the first Czechoslovak space flight.

ORIGINAL EXHIBITS

Visitors can see dozens of exhibits returning from space at Cosmos Discovery. Whether it's small things like space food, watches or cameras that astronauts used to photograph the Moon's surface, to the original F1 engine nozzle, the shuttle's ceramic tiles, the shuttle's wheels and nozzle or a collection of space suits. All of these exhibits have returned from their space missions and although some of them had to be collected from the ocean floor, they can now be seen at this unique exhibition in Brno.

CZECH FOOTPRINT

Exactly 40 years ago, the first non-American and non-Russian astronaut traveled to space. It was Vladimir Remek from (then) Czechoslovakia. However, the contribution of Czech science and industry to space travel development did not stop there. Therefore the exhibition shows the Czech footprint from the first astronaut to the advanced technologies that are supplied to modern space crafts by Czech companies today.
