Family Space Day at the George Observatory


Blast into outer space on a simulated space flight to the Moon! The Expedition Learning Center at the George Observatory will be open for individual children and adults to sign up for missions. No danger is involved! Astronauts are assigned jobs aboard the Space Station Observer and work together as they solve problems and have fun. Volunteers who work at NASA will run the missions and visit with the participants. Don’t miss this special opportunity to participate in real astronaut training!



Missions in the Expedition Learning Center are usually only open to groups with reservations. Don’t miss your chance to participate as an individual during this special event! A minimum of 10 participants is required for each mission. Refunds will be issued if the minimum is not met.



This event is available for people 7 years of age and older. Kids 7-9 must have an adult chaperone participate.
