After a brief training session, a group of 30 amateur astronauts boards the spacecraft for two hours of simulated navigation, data-gathering using real robotic arms, and the building and launching of a probe. Mission simulations are recommended for guests aged 11 and older, except for the Junior Astronauts program, which is recommended for guests aged 6 and older. See available missions.

Challenger Learning Center-St. Louis

The astronauts deftly dodge the oncoming trickle of rocks and debris from the meteor shower, and as the rubble clears they see the Moon up ahead. It is at this site that they’ll soon establish the first permanent human base. Though it sounds like science fiction, novice astronauts attempt this feat daily at Challenger Learning Center-St. Louis. Part of the Challenger Center for Space Science Education—a nonprofit founded by the families of the astronauts who died in the 1986 Challenger space-shuttle mission—the center educates visitors in science and teamwork with its space simulators. Whether navigating a spacecraft or abetting astronauts at a Mission Control modeled after NASA’s Johnson Space Center, student, community, and corporate groups must maintain a cooperative spirit while assembling a probe, or being the first human to land on Mars.
