Space exhibitions to be held in Riyadh, Jeddah, Dhahran
The Saudi Space Commission is to stage a series of exhibitions in Riyadh, Jeddah, and Dhahran in conjunction with the launch of the Kingdom’s mission to space.
The Saudi Toward Space events, which will run from May 21 to June 2, aim to offer visitors the opportunity to explore the cosmos, and learn about space flight and its history.
Targeted particularly at youth, the exhibitions will also highlight the country’s research contributions and scientific impact in the sector.
Announcing the initiative, commission officials said the exhibitions would include experiences and events to suit all ages, such as virtual reality games, astronaut training, and how to sleep in space.
Experts will also be on hand in a special pavilion to answer visitors’ questions, and educational and information workshops will be available for students.
