Euro Space Exploration Program – this was the name of our journey. The primary purpose of this program was to visit Euro Space Center in Transinne, Brussels.

Brussels, the capital of Belgium, is also popular for being the capital of the European Union. The day we drove to Brussels, we explored the city by road and then checked into our hotel. The next morning, we left for Euro Space Center. Once we had organised our luggage in our rooms, we headed to our common meeting point. We were oriented about the functionality of the space center and were divided into groups. The Moonwalk and Marswalk were divine experiences that we enjoyed through the VR system. The walk was truly memorable, and it felt like we were literally amidst the stars. Other super fun activities were Multi-Axis Unit and Free Fall Slide. The Multi-Axis Unit spun us in all directions at a really high speed. It made us feel like we were flying. The Free Fall is a daring activity because after being pulled seven metres above the ground, you have to leave the handles and fall without any support. We then watched a Space Tour that taught us about the history of space. After these activities were over, we had our dinner and went to sleep.

The next day, we took part in the Space Mission Simulation, where we accomplished all the steps involved between launching and landing a spacecraft. It was totally realistic, and we would like to do it again. Our next activity was the Microrocket Workshop, where we used simple materials to make a real rocket.

We concluded our two-day program with a session on astronauts’ lives in space. Finally, we launched our rockets, and it made us feel like throwing our caps in the air as if we were graduating from Euro Space Centre. We left the space center, and we were ready to explore the rest of the city.
