The Euro Space Center in Transinne
The Euro Space Center is a unique leisure and discovery park situated in Transinne, a small town in the Belgian Ardennes. The Center was inaugurated in 1991 and is based on the US Space Camp in Huntsville, Alabama, USA. It uses the same advanced equipment and software as the real astronauts training at the Marshall Space Flight Center, which is also located in Huntsville.
The space center also established the Euro Space Society, which is run by Belgian astronaut Dirk Frimout. The space society aims to interest a wide audience, mainly young people, in science and technology.
