Introducing Chat With An Astronaut  

For the first time in almost two years, astronauts are coming back to Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex! With the return of daily astronaut appearances comes a brand-new add-on enhancement just in time for the holidays.  

During this new experience, the Astronaut of the Day sits down in a casual, small-group setting to answer your most pressing questions. Enjoy a sampling of food and beverages while having a group conversation about what it is really like to live and work in space. With plenty of time for an engaging Q & A session, you are sure to leave feeling truly acquainted with a space pioneer and equipped with incredible stories to share for years to come.    

Chat With An Astronaut begins December 13, 2021 and is offered twice daily at 10:00 AM and 2:00 PM. 



  • A continental breakfast in the morning, or chef’s choice of culinary samplings in the afternoon 
  • 1 alcoholic drink per adult ticket (more available for purchase)
  • A commemorative gift and lithograph (signed portrait)of the astronaut
