Campers will blast off each day on an adventure across the solar system. We’ll learn all about the sun, moon, and planets in our solar system during personalized visits to the new Space Observation Research Laboratory and the roof-top solar telescope in the new NRC wing. Though we usually think of astronauts as pilots of a fancy plane, we’ll find out how sometimes they can be more like farmers, photographers, or engineers as we discover the many jobs of NASA astronauts. We’ll even get to build and launch our own rockets!
