Shuttle Launch Simulator 

The NASA Kennedy Space Center has opened its new Shuttle Launch Experience simulator; tested by astronauts, it is said to be spectacular and very realistic.

Participants experience G-forces during the simulated blast-off and zero gravity as the the craft shuts off its main engines on entering orbit. The illusion is completed when the shuttle's bay doors are opened, revealing a fabulous view of the earth from space.

The new Shuttle simulator is just one of many fun-filled adventure activities on offer at the Kennedy Space Center, including individual, family and corporate Astronaut Training Experiences ranging from one to three days.
