Living-room physics Project done in collaboration with the astronaut Jean Pierre Haignere who lift off twice from the Soyuz rocket. TV on, an astronaut, an interview, a launch, a chair …You, in the living room… Space tourism is a great success .The possibilities of weightlessness, to feel the thrill of liftoff and to finally meet the unknown doesn’t have to be a fantasy anymore. But space tourism is still just for the few. The Soyuz chair accurately reproduces the 3 stages of the Soyuz rocket launch. Reclining into launch position, you face the sky, put on your headset, and use the control panel to select your mode; just a single stage, or the full lift off experience. 5...4...3...2...1...., Which planet will you land on?
