Meet An Astronaut Each day at Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex, visitors get the rare opportunity to meet veteran NASA astronauts. During Astronaut Encounter, commanders, pilots, mission and payload specialists who have lived and worked in space share their experiences during a live presentation and question & answer session. Your Astronaut Encounter involves personally shaking hands and taking a photo with one of the few who have traveled to space. You may also visit the Astronaut of the Day in Space Shuttle Atlantis at the Shuttle Express for his or her autograph.
Please check the Daily Schedule upon arrival for show times and autograph opportunities. You may also visit the Event Calendar to see who is the Astronaut of the Day on the date of your visit.
