|The Houston Space Center
Houston has been home of America's space exploration. Most of
NASA's star sailing operations has taken place in this state. From space probes to space
shuttles, Houston has been the base of all such launches. This is precisely why the state
is nationally associated with rockets (they even have an NBA team named after it),
astronauts, and space shuttles.
Of course we can't all be astronauts and NASA employees to get close to all space-related
operations in Houston. However this doesn't necessarily mean that there's no way for us to
get a feel for the space adventures that takes place in Houston.
Experience the feel of being in space. Feel the low gravity of
the moon. Launch a rocket. Feel a real moon rock. Meet real astronauts.
Call for times astronauts are available.
