BREVARD COUNTY • KENNEDY SPACE CENTER, FLORIDA – In an all-new Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex program, students travel to the Red Planet for a day to live and work on Mars Base 1.
Set in a landscape of the future, rookie astronaut teams have the unique opportunity to travel to Mars through the Mars Transporter Vehicle.
Once there, work through the challenges of living on the Martian surface: manage the Base Operations Center on Mars, grow and harvest plants in the Botany Lab, and collect and analyze data that will be sent to real NASA scientists. Rookie Astronauts will also need to optimize energy intake for the Base by programming robots to clear debris from solar panels.
Students will leave Mars with a better understanding of how to adapt to life away from Earth. It is an experience unlike any other on the planet! View available dates below.
