Visit Space Center Houston

Space Center Houston is the official visitor center of NASA’s Johnson Space Center. This is a huge complex, where you can walk through the space shuttle replica Independence and the enormous shuttle carrier aircraft it’s mounted on. In the visitor center, you will find a replica of America’s first space station, Skylab, learn about NASA’s upcoming missions, including travel to Mars. Next take a tram to tour the Johnson Space Center, home of mission control and where astronauts train for space missions. To experience something truly unique, sign up for a Level 9 Tour and enjoy a behind-the-scenes look at Johnson Space Center. This includes the Buoyancy Lab, the ISS Mission Control, and simulation labs, along with other areas off limits on regular tours, and possibly even encounter an astronaut. This is a one-of-a-kind experience and very limited so sign up early! Here is a sneak peak. Speaking of Astronauts, there may be a visit to our conference by a renowned astronaut as well. Stay tuned for details!
