Summer Astronaut Training Experience

Aug 18, 2017 08:30 AM Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex


New for this summer, Astronaut Training Experience (ATX)® is open to everyone ages 8 and older for a few select dates - but only for a limited time. Whether you are with your friends, family (with or without kids) or significant other, Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex invites you to train like an astronaut.

ATX immerses participants in the world of astronaut training. It’s perfect for a small group of friends, and for young space explorers and parents to do together! Test out authentic hands-on simulators like the Gyro Multi-Axis Trainer and Mirco-Gravity Wall. Trainees will also perform a real space shuttle mission simulation within a full-scale, realistically outfitted mission control mock up.

Trainees will also meet a real veteran NASA astronaut, hearing personal accounts of his or her time in space.


Tuition: $145 per person plus tax


Available dates this summer: 

  • August 18, 2017 
  • August 21, 2017
  • August 31, 2017


Please note that this program will include a wide age range of participants. The program will cater to the broad age of the trainees. If you would prefer an Astronaut Training Experience with age restrictions, our Astronaut Training Experience (traditional) or ATX Family may be the best fit for your party.
