Reserve a seat on the flight deck for a trip to the Moon. Like real astronauts, crewmembers will attend a briefing session and then select tasks to perform on the mission such as Navigation, Medical, Communication, and Life Support. Small teams will conduct research, perform scientific experiments, and even deploy a probe. Tasks are detailed enough to feel real and challenging, simple enough for kids to do, and fun. Participants will work in a simulated Spacecraft and Mission Control, and half way through the mission, a crew exchange provides the “astronauts” an opportunity to experience the other simulator.
