(NAPSI)—Visitors welcomed the iconic spacecraft Atlantis to its new home at the Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex in Florida last year. The attraction was the most significant addition to the Visitor Complex in recent years, bolstering attendance to this unique destination, known for its mix as part museum, science center and theme park. Guests can see the historic Atlantis spacecraft as only astronauts have—with payload bay doors open and robotic arm extended, as if it has just undocked from the International Space Station (ISS). The immersive experience invites the curious to “be the astronaut” with never-before-seen, technologically sophisticated multimedia presentations and more than 60 interactive, touch-screen experiences and high-tech simulators that bring to life the passion of the 30-year Space Shuttle Program, as well as the magnitude of the engineering marvel. The top-of-the-line audiovisual and show systems, seldom-seen NASA images and footage, and reality-based astronaut training simulations combine to create a “goose bumps” experience. The exhibit also highlights the astounding achievements made possible by the shuttle, most notably the ISS and the deployment and maintenance of the Hubble Space Telescope.
