Landing at the Kennedy Space Center June 29, 2013
Okay, so it really isn’t landing but you know what I mean. This is an attraction that a lot of people are looking forward to. Kids and adults alike look up to the stars and at some point in their life they wonder what it must be like to travel out amongst the stars. What a great adventure it must be for those few who dare to take the chance and the opportunity to fly around the earth this way.
History in the Making
Seeing the Atlantis facility and knowing that this vehicle has actually been in space is exciting in itself but knowing that this part of the NASA space program is no longer being used makes this a trip that is well worth taking. The construction on the complex alone to house this wonderful spacecraft is an enormous 90,000 square feet in size. This will give visitors a unique experience when viewing Atlantis while also learning about all of the history behind her. This is not just an exhibit where you walk around and look at the sites, oh no, this is much more than that and it should be considering they are spending around $100 million dollars to add this exhibit. You will have the option of getting in one of the many simulators added to the site as well as have hands-on experiences. You can also learn about all of the missions that the astronauts performed while taking Atlantis in to space.
If you are going to be in Orlando after June 29th, 2013, you owe it to yourself and your family to take a day trip away from all the hustle and bustle that Orlando is famous for and take a short drive to Cape Canaveral. There is so much to do and see at the Kennedy Space Center even without adding the new Atlantis Shuttle. You will be missing out if you don’t.
Visit the Kennedy Space Center website to stay updated on the progress of this new attraction. You can even move the camera around and see all of the progress being made.
