Kennedy Space Center Deluxe Experience: Lunch with An Astronaut and Up-Close Tour
Space Center Lunch
Your exclusive all-inclusive Space Center lunch, which includes your astronaut guide, also consists of two drinks and snacks. This is the perfect time to ask questions about how astronauts dream of life on Mars or what it's like working on rockets in NASA's research lab before heading into space.
The Kennedy Space Center was initially built to support the Apollo program. Located on Merritt Island, Florida, near Cape Canaveral, Kennedy Space Center is also home to the original Cape Canaveral Air Force Station. In addition to being used for launching spy satellites and bombs into space during the Cold War, Kennedy Space Center has also found some of NASA's most famous missions and astronauts, including Neil Armstrong, who walked on the moon in 1969.
You will see the Apollo Saturn V rocket and the Atlantis Space Shuttle in their hangars. Take advantage of a close-up tour of these historical launches.
Next, you will explore the Space Station Processing Facility (SSPF). This facility houses additional processing rooms for NASA's International Space Station partners, such as Russia, Japan, and Europe. After that, your astronaut guide will show you how tools are used in NASA's research lab before they head off into space.
