About

Experience authentic NASA-style training and an out-of-this-world space launch on this shuttle simulator.

Rocket to the Red Planet

Fulfill your fantasy of being an astronaut as you dodge meteors, navigate nebulae and slingshot around the moon.Your journey to Mars begins at Planetary Plaza, where you’ll find inspirational quotes from pioneers of space travel.

From there, make your way to the Simulation Lab, which houses a 35-foot-tall gravity wheel like the kind NASA uses to simulate gravity in deep space. A genuine NASA Lunar Roving Vehicle (LRV), one of only 4 in existence, is also on display, on loan from the Smithsonian. Then pass by the Command Room, a glass bullpen where ISTC mission-control personnel are hard at work, manning their control panels.

Before you board, actor Gary Sinise briefs you as you prepare for your mission to Mars on the X-2 Deep Space Shuttle at the International Space Training Center (ISTC). Each member of your 4-cadet crew will assume an important role: navigator, pilot, commander or engineer. During your flight, each cadet will be instructed to initiate a mission-critical sequence, so be prepared!

Board your vessel, lower your harness and brace yourself for the incredible force of lift-off. Get goose bumps as you arc around the moon and then hold on tight as you attempt a precarious precision landing on the Red Planet’s alien surface.

Your crew is counting on you to do your part to ensure a successful mission and a safe trip back to Earth!
