Today marked the opening of Gateway: The Deep Space Launch Complex at Kennedy Space Center, giving visitors a chance to interact with and experience the next generation of space travel technology.
Guests are now welcome to explore the newest addition to the Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex. Gateway: The Deep Space Launch Complex features a showcase of NASA and commercial spacecraft hardware including flight-flown artifacts like the Orion EFT-1 and a SpaceX Falcon 9 Booster; immersive, interactive displays and games; and a “journey” through space.
The centerpiece of this new complex is Spaceport KSC, which allows guests to get a taste of commercial space travel. Visitors can choose one of four journeys and enter a motion simulator to experience space exploration. Or, for visitors who either want a moton-free experience or don’t meet the 39-inch height requirement, all four missions can also be viewed comfortably from the Observation Bay.
There are so many incredible things to see and experience at Gateway: The Deep Space Launch Complex and you can get a small sample of what this exhibit has to offer and see the very first guests experiencing it in the video below:
