Live Out Your Childhood Astronaut Dreams…Virtually

Almost all kids go through a phase in life where they think they want to be an astronaut when they grow up. What could be more amazing than riding on a rocket ship to outer space? Now you can walk in the shoes of an astronaut in virtual visits to Kennedy Space Center. NASA and Google Street View have collaborated, offering 6,000 panoramic views of the facilities, including the space shuttle launch pad, Vehicle Assembly Building, and Launch Firing Room #4. With this virtual tour, you can get up close and personal with the engine that has the power to generate 400,000lbs of thrust and see Space Shuttle Orbiters—the Atlantis and Endeavour from any angle you choose. You may not be able to taste the freeze dried ice cream from the gift shop, but this is an awesome project for space lovers and astronaut-wannabes of all ages!
