Above the Arctic Circle on an idyllic island group called Vesterålen, you will find Andøya Space Center. The place
is widely known for its whale safaris and midnight sun, but it is because of the dancing northern lights that the space centre was built here. Originally a research centre for the mystic lights, they continue this task while also exploring undiscovered parts of space. “Researchers from all over the world collect their data from here, whether at NASA, ESA or world-leading universities,” says Robert Svendsen, manager at Spaceship Aurora. This may be your one and only chance to explore a real space centre.
