Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex Seeking Heroes To Enhance Heroes & Legends Exhibit
By Space Coast Daily // July 21, 2016
BREVARD COUNTY • KENNEDY SPACE CENTER – The way heroes are defined in the 21st Century is a focus of the new Heroes & Legends featuring the U.S. Astronaut Hall of Fame attraction, scheduled to open at Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex in November 11.
In an unprecedented initiative designed to more fully engage the visitor in their experience, the public is being asked to submit a video about a hero that has inspired them.
Select video submissions will be featured alongside NASA’s most famous astronauts and celebrity ambassadors.
“Ask 15 different people the definition of a hero, and you’ll likely get 15 different answers,” said Therrin Protze, Chief Operating Officer of Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex.
“And that’s exactly the point. What we want people to realize is that while we all have hero potential, all heroes share one common trait – they have all somehow made the world a better place through their actions. And that means they could be an astronaut, or a teacher, or a parent.”
Designed to provide the historical background and context for space exploration and the legendary men and women who pioneered our journey into space, Heroes & Legends will use engaging storytelling, cutting edge technology and interactive elements to introduce visitors to not just the heroes of the NASA space program, but the hero potential in themselves.
Entering is easy. Video submissions need to answer three questions:
Who is your hero, how did they inspire you, and what makes a hero? Once complete, videos can be posted on one of three social media platforms, including Twitter, Instagram or Facebook, using the hashtag #KSCHero. Or simply CLICK HERE to upload the video.
