NASA Space Exploration Exhibit Coming To Florida Theme Park

No... Not THAT Florida Theme Park...

America's plans for opening the space frontier, including new exploration of Earth's moon and future voyages beyond, are featured in an interactive exhibit that will be open to the public in Sunrise, FL November 12-14.

The NASA Exploration Experience exhibit will complement space-themed activities at Wannado City, an indoor, role-playing theme park for kids ages two to 14. Wannado City is located at 12801 West Sunrise Blvd. in downtown Sunrise. The public is invited to tour the exhibit each day from 9 am to 5 pm EST.

The exhibit simulates a breathtaking visit to the first destination on America's new journey into the solar system: Earth's moon.

"Interactive control panels and activity stations, immersive 3D imagery and audio effects will plunge visitors into a not-too-distant future on the moon," said NASA Marshall Space Flight Center Outreach Coordinator Kirk Pierce, a spokesperson for the exhibit. "They'll discover what it will be like to live and work on the surfaces of other worlds -- and how it will benefit life back home on Earth."

NASA staffers will be on hand to answer questions and discuss some of the thousands of technologies used on Earth as a result of years of space-based research and development by the agency and its partners.

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."
