Space Mission Simulator
The Challenger Learning Center 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 three simulated space missions: Rendezvous with a Comet, Return to the Moon, and Voyage to Mars. These simulations provide plenty of challenges for the crews in space and on the ground. From kindergarteners to adult groups, space mission simulations can be tailored for your group* for field trips, birthday parties, corporate team building and much more!
*A minimum of nine people are required for a space mission simulation.*
