Space Shuttle Atlantis
There she is. Just an arm’s length away, NASA’s most incredible feat of engineering to date – a vehicle that launched like a rocket, flew in orbit like a spacecraft, and landed on a runway like a glider. It’s a view only astronauts on the International Space Station or spacewalkers have experienced and one you’ll never forget.

Shuttle Launch Experience
Shuttle Launch Experience is an incredible journey of vertically launching into space and orbiting Earth aboard the space shuttle. Guest “crew members” strap in for this all-too-real simulation, which immerses visitors in the sights, sounds and feelings of a space shuttle launch, designed under the guidance of NASA and veteran space shuttle astronauts.

“Hubble 3D” Float beside space-walking astronauts and experience the powerful story of the Hubble Space Telescope and its profound impact on the way we view the universe and ourselves.
“Journey To Space” celebrates the Space Shuttle program, International Space Station and their vital contributions to the technical and human knowledge that will enable our species to travel deeper into space, to asteroids, Mars and beyond.
