Your mission is to establish a permanent base for Earth observation and determine whether off-Earth settlements are possible.
The Challenger Learning Center’s Space Mission Simulator offers visitors the next best thing to actual space flight with a Mission Control room designed after NASA Johnson Space Center and an orbiting space station modeled after the laboratory on the International Space Station. During a space mission, team members work as scientists and engineers. Onboard astronauts in the Space Station Simulator work with their counterparts in the Mission Control Simulator to fly one of our simulated space missions. These simulations provide plenty of challenges for the crews in space and on the ground.
