We may have decided we belong to the seven seas, but that doesn't mean we didn't spend our childhoods dreaming of exploring space. And while our dreams of working for NASA might be a little unrealistic at this point, we have found the next best thing: Adult Space Camp!
What is Adult Space Camp?
Head to the Marshall Space Flight Center and spend three days training just like the astronauts who get launched into orbit. While there, build your own personal rocket, complete flight missions, and take part in simulated training scenarios.
Not sure what that actually means? Basically, you'll do exactly what the astronauts do without years of science or military training. Take a ride in the multi-axis machine, find out what it's like to walk on the moon, and get weightless while scuba diving.
Where is Adult Space Camp?
Just a few hours from major Southeast cities like Nashville, Atlanta, and Birmingham, you'll find yourself at the Marshall Space Flight Center in Huntsville, Alabama. Birthplace of some of the first satellites and rockets to enter space, it has also been home to Space Camp since 1982. And while you may be too old now for the traditional summer camp experience, you can still take advantage of the Adult Space Academy!
