This idea is elaborated as working prototype via MyMachine Portugal

This Dream Machine idea is elaborated as working prototype through MyMachinePortugal. It was conceptualised by higher education students and elaborated as a working prototype by technical secondary school students.

How it works:

you go inside (maximum 2 children at a time) and go sit in the special seats. Then the door closes. The inside control panel will light up. The countdown begins. 10 - 9 - 8 - ... - 3 - 2 - 1 - Lift off. Moments later you arrive close the moon. In the ceiling of the capsule you can have a clear sight on the surface of the Moon via a large screen. 

Then the return to earth starts and moments later you're landed. The door opens.
All the time you will experience matching music to keep you calm and excited.
