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, November 19, you and your crew can immerse yourselves in the Australian premiere of Neighbourhood Earth — an award-winning exhibition taking place at the International Convention Centre in Darling Harbour. The family-friendly event will bring together science and cutting-edge technology to create an unforgettable and space-like experience presented by M Live.

Inside the completely COVID-safe exhibition, you can expect illuminated screens, spectacular surround sound and a giant projection-mapped dome to top off the cinematic and multi-sensory adventure. There'll also be museum quality models, spacecrafts, tools and astronaut suits showcasing facts and stories about space exploration. Plus, touch sensing projections and holographics that'll leave you mesmerised.

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

Feel like losing yourself in a truly out-of-this-world experience? Looking for the antidote to your life in lockdown? Tickets to Neighbourhood Earth go on sale on Monday, October 11 and the exhibition opens on Friday, November 19 at the International Convention Centre for a limited time.
