NASA TRIP

NASA TRIP
Our team of future Astronauts set off for the trip to NASA, Kennedy Space Centre, Orlando in April , 2011 and May/June 2013/ June 2015. The students visited Kennedy Space Center (KSC), where young people experience, imagine and interact through space shuttle mission simulations and get a chance to witness first hand the everyday challenges faced by astronauts. The Students were put into the shoes of an astronaut for a day. Using the motion based astronaut training simulators modeled after the Mercury, Gemini, Apollo and Space Shuttle Programs, students got to experience the training that astronauts do before they launch into space. Some of the motion based simulators included the Multi-Axis trainer, Micro-Gravity Wall and T-Chair (trajectory). They also got an opportunity to meet an actual NASA astronaut Fred Gregory, who made a presentation about his experiences in space and the future of space exploration.
