Spaceport Indiana

Though it's nowhere near Cape Canaveral, Spaceport Indiana opens a portal to the upper atmosphere and suborbital space through educational programs, a launch facility, and various testing facilities. Located at the Columbus Municipal Airport, the center helps private companies and the military test new innovations in low Earth orbit, while also running programs for curious junior astronauts. Summer camps and one-off sessions focus on building rockets and launching high-altitude balloons; scientists also travel to local classrooms for demonstrations. A yearly Space Day further excites exploratory instincts with topics that have included space tourism, interplanetary travel, living outside of Earth, and how much easier it is to bathe a dog when gravity can't help it run away.
