America's plans for opening the

Touring the NASA Exploration Experience exhibit takes
approximately 12 minutes. The exhibit is wheelchair accessible.
"Exhibit visitors can learn how our quality of life improves
when America's space exploration activities refine existing
technologies or develop new breakthroughs in areas such as power
generation, computer technology, communications, networking and
robotics," Pierce said. "Visitors also can learn how other advanced
technologies are increasing the safety and reliability of space
transportation systems, while also reducing costs."
