Visit tour to Airbus DS GmbH Company

Welcome to our Airbus Company tour. How do people live, sleep, and carry out research in zero gravity? You'll find all the amazing answers at Airbus Defence & Space. Bremen is one of the leading centres in Europe for spaceflight. The European contribution to the International Space Station (ISS) was built at Airbus Defence & Space. The ISS is in orbit some 400 kilometres above Earth, so delivering supplies is a real challenge for engineers. How do water and food get to the astronauts? Answers to these and many other questions are provided in a replica of the Columbus module. You can also find out how much a litre of milk weighs on the surface of the moon. The 1:1 scale model of the Columbus space laboratory, the original of which is part of the International Space Station (ISS) circling 400 kilometres above Earth at 28,000 kilometres per hour, is open to visitors. And take a look at the simulation and diagnosis room, where the engineers on the ground maintain contact with the International Space Station.
