This Saturday, September 19th at 10:00 AM, The Kennedy Space Center will host an Astronaut Training Experience for anyone ages 10 and older!

The all-new Astronaut Training Experience Center is located in Merritt Island, Florida, and is the newest attraction at the Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex.

The experience will bring you as close to training, living, and working on Mars as possible without ever leaving earth by practicing your docking skills, navigating the unique Red Planet terrain, and experiencing the sensation of performing a spacewalk in a microgravity environment. Using exciting and immersive simulation technology, you and your team will work together to solve real-world problems using authentic NASA science.

The Kennedy Space Center is located at Space Commerce Way in Merritt Island, Florida, which is about a 2 hour drive north of Jupiter, Florida.


$175 (plus tax): admission is not included, but not required

Program begins at 10:00 AM, with check-in beginning at 9:30 AM

Trainees must be ages 10 or older. Minors must be accompanied by a participating, paying adult over the age of 18.
