Space travel made headlines in 2021 when several billionaires battled to be the first to exit the Earth's atmosphere. But thankfully, you don't have to be mega-rich to get your intergalactic fix this year.

From Friday, June 17–Sunday, August 28, you and your crew can immerse yourselves in the Melbourne premiere of Neighbourhood Earth — an award-winning exhibition taking place at Emporium. The family-friendly event will bring together science and cutting-edge technology to create an unforgettable outer space experience presented by entertainment platform Fever.

Inside the exhibition, expect illuminated screens, spectacular surround sound and a giant projection-mapped dome combining to deliver a multi-sensory cinematic adventure. There'll also be museum-quality models, spacecrafts, tools and astronaut suits, showcasing facts and stories about space exploration. Plus, the touch-respondent projections and holographics are bound to leave you mesmerised.

There's some big brains behind the project — it was dreamed up by the teams at the US Space & Rocket Centre and NASA's George C. Marshall Space Flight Centre in conjunction with integrated production company Toto Creative — so be ready to have your own mind expanded.
