Going for that ultimate selfie? Say no more, fam. Check, check.

2. Look back in time and learn more about the Apollo 11 moon landing

Being in charge of the first manned mission to the Moon was no easy task to handle. Working in NASA Flight Control must've been one of the most exhilarating jobs in the world back then. After all, who else can say they helped land the first men on the Moon?

Of course, you'll also be able to get a deeper understanding of the complexities involved in sending humans to space, let alone the lunar surface! 

The watch worn on the Moon mission came with a long strap designed to be worn over a space suit.

Fun Fact: OMEGA played a HUGE role in the Apollo 11 moon-landing - the OMEGA Speedmaster Professional, specifically. You know a watch is badass when it's chosen to help two of NASA's most legendary astronauts keep precise timing up in Outer Space!

3. Take star-studded photos in the Infinity Room

Imagine a room lined with LEDs and mirrors mounted in all directions. Now, picture (hehe) yourself in that room. Trippy, to say the least!

Everybody's favourite astrophysicist, Neil deGrasse Tyson, gets it.
