The Project

On April 8th, 2022, Israeli astronaut Eytan Stibbe took off from Cape Canaveral, Florida, on a mission to the International Space Station (ISS).

As part of the undertaking, a unique Rakia Mission Center has been built at the Check Point Software offices in Tel Aviv.

The Challenge

We were required to plan a center that included a control room from which scientists, artists, and educators could monitor the activities of Eytan Stibbe and make necessary changes to experiments in real-time.

We were also required to make the Rakia Mission Centre accessible to thousands of students, allowing them to experience the human journey into space through interactive elements and inspiring educational activities.

The Experience

We divided the center into five complexes, each representing a different aspect of the mission:

  1. The International Space Station Complex, which included information and a physical experience
  2. The "Rakia" Mission Complex control center
  3. The Scientific Experiments Complex – where visitors could experience a visualization of the experiments.
  4. The Life in the International Space Station Complex – with an app that analyses the emotional state of visitors, just like that of astronauts on the space station.
  5. The Inspirational "There is no dream too far away" Complex with a unique photography exhibit demonstrated the window through which the astronauts observe the Earth from the International Space Station.

The center operated for 45 days and hosted thousands of visitors and dozens of events.
