Explore Mission Zones
Mankind’s journey into space can be grouped in chronological eras, which is why the Visitors Complex is organized into Mission Zones which feature group attractions and experiences that reflect specific periods of time and achievements.
Beginning with the dawn of space exploration and extending to current and ongoing missions, Mission Zones give visitors a hands-on feel for the personal stories of humans in space. The zones feature space eras and themes including Heroes & Legends; Behind the Gates; Race to the Moon; Shuttle: A Ship Like No Other; and NASA Now & Next.
You’ll learn about the pioneers of NASA’s early space program and about the 1960s space race between the world’s two superpowers, the USA and the Soviet Union. You can get access behind the gates to historic launch sites and working spaceflight facilities and get up close to the actual Atlantis space shuttle. You’ll learn where NASA’s programs are now and get excited about the future of space exploration and travel
