Mission History

It may sound surprising, but the story of BEEN IN SPACE began in 1571. At that time, the famous German astronomer, mathematician and researcher Johannes Kepler was born in Weil der Stadt. The laws of planetary motion discovered by him are still the base of all calculations in our solar system today. When NASA calculated the orbits for its Apollo missions, Kepler was virtually part of the team.

Fascinated by Space

Florian Noller grew up in Johannes Kepler's birthtown. He got a telescope for Christmas and often visited the local planetarium. Interest in human spaceflight quickly became apparent. It turned into Florian's passion and profession.

His idea: To make the fascination of space travel tangible. With artifacts that everyone can afford ā€“ and with unique collector's items that can only be found with close and long-standing connections.

The Mission of 'BEEN IN SPACE'

Florian and his team preserve memories of great people who made space history ā€“ and arouse the curiosity of the next generation. BEEN IN SPACE wants to connect: Legends like Apollo 16 moonwalker Charlie Duke and record-holding cosmonaut Gennadi Padalka. To tell the history of space programs (Mercury, Gemini, Apollo, Skylab, Space Shuttle, Vostok, Voshkod) and have a look at current space missions like Soyuz, SpaceX's 'Dragon', NASA's 'Artemis' program, Blue Origin's 'New Shepard' or Virgin Galactic's 'Spaceship'.

BEEN IN SPACE creates a connection between vision and reality. If you hold an original, authentic space artifact from this website's shop in your hands, you will realize: Dreams can come true!
