Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex has officially announced Lockheed Martin as the title sponsor for the new Astronaut Training Experience® (ATX).
The occasion was marked with fanfare and celebrations as representatives from Lockheed Martin pressed a ceremonial “launch” button to signify the official beginning of the relationship with Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex.
Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex (KSCVC) has long been known as the gateway to outer space for those seeking to get a close up view of our nation’s space program. Between housing space artifacts and memorabilia, to actual spacecraft like the orbiter Atlantis, as well as hosting viewings of launches from the historic pads, they have always been on the cutting edge of space related tourism.
With the introduction of the all new Astronaut Training Experience (ATX), KSCVC will continue the tradition of offering hands-on interactive exhibits, but with a twist – you actually get to experience training for simulated space missions!
