Come visit the Ottawa Carleton Educational Space Simulation and see what makes a space mission run. Take a tour through the OCESS room at the 440 Albert Street Education Centre and walk through the caves of Saturn's moon Hyperion!  From mission control on Earth, to a spaceship speeding between the planets, to the interior of an alien moon: take a walk into outer space and back again.

You can learn more about the 'Spacesim' project here.


Route

We'll be indoors at 440 Albert St.  To find the Spacesim project, come through the courtyard opposite the bus stop.
