2019 marks the 50th anniversary of the Apollo missions, and Telus World of Science – Edmonton is proud to present a science exposition so out of this world we’ve had to rename the Jasper Junior/Senior High School where this event takes place to the Jasper Space Station!

Gaze at a giant inflatable moon and find the locations of the Apollo moon landing sites. Drive a remote-controlled moonbot over a moonscape and perform tasks for your mission. Try your hand at the lunar excursion model on the moon just like Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin had to do back in 1969! See various science demonstrations presented by science centre scientists on topics such as electricity and magnetism, cryogenics, lasers, and other wonders. See our large Van De Graaff generator put some spark into your life!!  Make soda pop using a special ingredient and much more! Step into the science centre’s new portable digital dome planetarium and see exciting shows on the night sky and on the history of human space flight! There’s something for scientists of every age to experience at the Jasper Space Station.
